English has no exact stylistic equivalent for some words and phrases in the other languages. Thus, the author has sometimes used a relatively innocuous, neutral English word or phrase to translate what might be considered an unimaginable horror by some speakers of the other language.
Whenever possible, idiomatic translations of the words and phrases have been supplied. In cases where the literal meaning is obscured as a result, it is provided in brackets. Since many of the entries could be translated by any of several American English synonyms, a relatively small number of words are used repeatedly in the translations, while a much larger selections of them may be found in the final chapter, arranged under generic headings.
