Dictionnaire abrégé du surréalisme, 1938 by André Breton and Paul Éluard is a dictionary of surrealism. It was translated as Abridged Dictionary of Surrealism .

The dictionary defined such notions as l'amour fou,the cadavre exquis, the readymades of Marcel Duchamp ("objet usuel promu à la dignité d'objet d'art par le simple choix de l'artiste" , "an ordinary object elevated to the dignity of a work of art by the mere choice of an artist").

It defined "reality" by stating that "La " réalité " est aux doigts de cette femme qui souffle à la première page des dictionnaires."
