Editorial Reviews

Review

“One can only guess at the effort which has gone into this magnum opus…this massive new contribution to Indonesian lexicography.... There is not space to discuss all the many features of this dictionary.... The book, besides being massive, is beautifully produced and reflects credit on the Ohio University Press and the American Indonesian Chamber of Commerce as well as the compilers.”
Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society


“If a library has only one Indonesian-English reference book, this should be it.... Highly recommended.”
CHOICE


“Weighing a hefty five pounds and providing users with definitions to tens of thousands of terms, this substantial dictionary is surely the most authoritative and comprehensive Indonesian dictionary available.”
American Reference Books Annual


“Real life examples...turn A Comprehensive Indonesian-English Dictionary into more than a practical aid for reading other texts: it is a joy to read the dictionary itself. In short, the dictionary is a must for anyone who is interested in Indonesia beyond the shallow level of the culturally autistic expatriate.... The indefinite article in the title of A Comprehensive Indonesian-English Dictionary is too modest for this volume that will serve well for many years to come. Stevens and Schmidgall-Tellings: those are names to remember.”
Indonesia


“The new A Comprehensive Indonesian-English Dictionary passes the kinerja test with flying colours. Its coverage of new terms, borrowed words, acronyms and colloquialisms is excellent, as is its brief, but useful, summary of nonstandard nasalisation patterns and pronunciation notes. Its layout is one of the best I've seen. The pages are compact, allowing for relatively comprehensive coverage, but each derivative is highlighted and located on a new line within the main entry.”

It's simply the best Indonesian-English dico there is, better than the other alternative An Indonesian-English Dictionary (Hardcover). The lemmata are more current.

The "Comprehensive Indonesian-English Dictionary" by Alan M. Stevens and A. Schmidgall-Tellings is what it promises to be: a very comprehensive and up-to-date dictionary. I have not yet come across a modern word not included in the dictionary. The lay-out and print are also pleasing to the eye. It is simply an excellent 5-star dictionary.

By Dong Qi Sheng on November 23, 2008
Format: Hardcover
Good printing and up-to-date grammatical items. For many indonesian dictionaries,they did not indicate the future-tense usage for the word of hedak, while this one, it put it as the first one definition in its lemmata. Very good dictionary indeed.

Format: Hardcover
let me give an example 'obat:remedy,berobat:to take medicine,mengobatikan:to cre,terobati:cured,bengobat:medicine used to treat,bengobatan:therapy'. so,you see two many variations deriving from the word 'obat'we can multiply similar examples.this dictionary is full with derivations of a great deal is used in sample sentences. a monumental work on indonesian language.
