Foreign language "bibles" (superlative, comprehensive language resources) for language-learning lovers?
In the English speaking world, it's interesting how language learning materials differ in their availability. For example, after some digging, I found stunning resources for Spanish, Russian, Arabic:
I've paged through the Spanish one, and it's superb. I haven't looked through the Russian or Arabic one very much.
However, try looking for something this good for, say, French, Dutch, German, Swedish, etc. There just doesn't seem to be very much for most languages, at least in English. I'm talking about the sorts of books that blow you away in their comprehensiveness, ease-of-use, and overall labor-of-love-ness.
Here are my questions:
For those of you striving towards fluency in non-native tongues, what are your "bibles" that you're in love with?
For those of you in love with a language that doesn't have a lot of very good learning resources in print, how do you cope? Why do you think your language doesn't have lots of available resources?
