un mio parente madrelingua italiano ma che vive negli USA da ormai una decina d'anni mi ha chiesto se conosco un dizionario che non sia italiano inglese come tutti ma che tratti solo l'american english (in effetti non gli interessa certo sapere come si dice X in gran bretagna!).
non parlo di un dizionario tecnico, ma di uno generico: lui non fa nulla che riguardi le lingue a livello lavorativo, gli serve solo per controllare le parole nuove che impara in inglese (ad esempio, l'altro giorno ha scoperto «gung-ho») e per non dimenticare totalmente l'italiano (ad esempio, se non gli viene in mente come si dice X in italiano).
avete suggerimenti a proposito?

Harper Collins Sansoni Italian Dictionary

My copy is the third edition and already over ten years old, but I still use it regularly. It's full of American English terms (including Gung ho!)
