For my preference, I'd have a x01 Verbs for each language (Russian, German, French - I have the German already, want to find out if there's a 501 for Russian yet, instead of the old 201 I've got).
Where I'm looking for recommendations is for three books:
I need a dictionary each for French, German and Russian, and by that I mean a monolingual one for each. I already know enough to find the newest Duden for German. Can anyone recommend a French and a Russian monolingual dictionary? As in, what people would call a dictionary in those countries?
Also, I need a recommendation for a good German-English/English-German dictionary. My French and Russian are Oxford - I have the Concise Oxford Russian-English, and the Oxford-Hachette Concise French.
So, to sum up:
1) A French dictionary, monolingual?
2) A Russian dictionary, monolingual?
3) A German-English bidirectional dictionary?
Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
