The Cask of Amontillado is a well-known short story in the English speaking world, but not so much among non-native speakers, partly because of its formal language that is relatively hard to understand.
I have has selected over 100 words and idioms from the story and explained them in a manner understandable to English learners using unobtrusive annotations within the text itself.
All explained terms are presented with pronunciation in American and British English, and the annotations also contain detailed notes on grammar and spelling.
