4.0 out of 5 stars Great! some words are missing though... July 29, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I used this to read Beowolf and it worked great. Some of the words I wasn't sure of showed up here, however some words are missing. It happened 2 or 3 times doing my reading. I had to search it on the internet to find what it was. However, you can't argue with that right? It's free! people who need a dictionary like this should get this one. but if you're looking for a "english dictionary" please go look somewhere else, this isn't what you're looking for.
If you want to buy the hardcopy... don't! if you're looking for one... choose something else other than this. If you're getting the digital version... sure. why not. it's free.

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful considering it's free. April 19, 2013
By Robin
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Most of the negative reviews for this seem to be people who don't understand what it is. I'm not really sure how someone mistakes it for a modern English dictionary since it does not say that in the title at all.

This is a useful reference guide for words from the language of Old English, i.e. the language spoken in the early middle ages and not to be confused with Modern English, what we speak today. Understand that Old English barely, if at all, resembles Modern English. It is essentially a completely different language and this is basically a translation dictionary.

That said, even understanding this, I was surprised to find some basic words were not included, such as 'ætheling'. Perhaps the dictionary is assuming that a student of Old English already knows and does not need to look up such a common word but I would have liked it to be complete.

The Kindle edition is searchable and one does sometimes need to use the proper unique characters to get the correct search results, though not always. For example, you can search for 'acalan' and get results for 'ācalan' but you can not get results for 'æthebban' by searching for 'aethebban'. Additionally, it does not have a table of contents so you can't jump to a certain letter.

Though I would like it to be more comprehensive and the search function/navigation could be improved to accommodate for the lack of unique characters, the Kindle edition is available for free. As a freebie, it's fairly useful especially given that I didn't notice any OCR errors that often plague public domain books.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not suitable for Kindle January 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Though a useful dictionary for very old and obscure words, it is practically useless on the Kindle since it can't be searched.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for students. May 27, 2013
By Keri
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am going to delete this book, but only because I have two other dictionaries. I am sure this is as good as any dictionary. Teaches new words, spelling and definations. Also teaches punchuations in the first few pages. A must for anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite Useful January 8, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A good little dictionary for Old English students. I got it on Kindle for a good price, and have found it quite useful. In the small world of OE dicts, this is 2nd or third place of what is even available in any downloadable or print format.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dictionary February 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a good dictionary for the Kindle Fire computer app. The app origianlly was not needed since the Kindle Fire app reader comes with a dictionary. However, the default dictionary was lost in a glitch and since it is the default, and Amazon retains a memory on line of what your apps are, you can not reload the default dictionary in the computer reader application. I hope that Amazon will correct this in a future upgrade to the Kindle Fire.
