Conventional dictionaries are fine when you know the word you want to look up and how to spell it, but when you're learning a new language, sometimes a picture is the way to go. The Oxford-Duden Pictorial Thai and English Dictionary
is arranged thematically, with vocabulary accompanying each picture. So the Soft Fruit page, for example, features 65 illustrations of fruits, leaves, pits, blossoms, and more, with their appellations--in English and Thai. This dictionary is invaluable for learning the names of items that are common in the United States but are rare or nonexistent in Thailand. There are 399 such thematic pages, covering animals and plants, art, music, and mathematics, games, sports, meteorology, and a vast assortment of industries. With its two indices, in Thai and in English, this reference is a wonderfully useful tool for the Thai student of English.
