Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Being a dictionary, this is for nothing more than reference. Despite the size, it does have quite a few entries. This dictionary tends to give meanings in long sentences unlike Percival's which provides equivalent Tamil words and synonyms. Those looking for meanings, go for the Oxford dictionary but those needing word equivalents, go for Percival's.

As far as how quickly it arrived and whether the book was as described, I say yes to both.

Format: Hardcover
First-ever fully definition-based, learner-centric bilingual dictionary providing meanings in the form of definitions and single word equivalents in most cases, it should be an indispensable wordbook in the hands of Tamil learners of English, both formal and non-formal.
