The Spanish of Spain and the Spanish of America (Ediciones SM).

In Spain you take the autobus, but in Mexico you ride the camion. In The Spanish of Spain and the Spanish of America (Ediciones SM), the reader will find a useful list of local variations of the language shared by more than 350 million people. Working from the vocabularies of six Spanish-speaking countries--Spain, Argentina, Chile, Mexico, Uruguay and Venezuela--the editors compile examples that represent the differences in each. The terms are grouped in various categories, such as household, kitchen, nutrition, and transportation. At the end of the book there is an index of the words used, ordered alphabetically.
