Customer Reviews

A wonderful asset for anyone learning the Greek language!
Nichelle Jette
And if the dependent (which forms the perfective subjunctive and perfective future) is irregular, as it often is, there is no way to find it either.
Incredulous stare
Clear, easy to read, but unlike the advertising it is not a "pocket" dictionary.

This dictionary is fantastic. The little things are what matter in selecting a translation dictionary: the pages are white and the text is black (making it very easy to read); Each word is not only defined but put into sentences that are also translated. It has 65,000 words, more than most of the other dictionaries, it is paperback and its size lends to easy usage.
I recommend this dictionary over the others available. You won't be disappointed.

Format: Paperback
I bought this dictionary last year to replace a Collins version now some 20 years old. Although a little large for the actual pocket, it is certainly small and light enough to take with you while traveling. An advantage of the medium size is that the type is not minuscule and you need not squint. After almost one year I have encountered only a handful of words not in the dictionary (mostly technical terms). The translations seem to be accurate, with the commonest synonyms listed first, the spellings are modern, demotic Greek (not katharevousa like my old Collins), the gender of nouns is given, and there is a useful 9-page table of tenses of common verbs at the back (present, aorist active, aorist passive, past particple), which is enough for me not to have to carry around a verbs book as well. I have found no inconsistencies so far in cross-checking the English-Greek against the Greek-English translations. Definitely recommended.

I love this dictionary! It is small enough to fit in my purse, and I find myself referring to it all the time. It includes verb declension charts in the back and next to the Greek words lists other common phrases you might be searching for (which is very very useful)! The Greek student will probably eventually want to get a second larger dictionary for keeping at home because this does not have everything in it. However it does contain enough that I have made it through two years of university level Greek courses and am starting on my third with this as my only dictionary. A wonderful asset for anyone learning the Greek language!

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Michael P. Jacobs on January 9, 2007
Format: Paperback
I have been taking modern Greek classes for a year and a half and using on this dictionary to supplement my textbooks. [Note to Word Bird and others: this is not a Greek phrase book for tourists.] I have found it useful and relatively comprehensive, and most of my complaints are minor.

I find the print size a little too small for my middle-aged eyes. Also, the size and particular font used are not the clearest for distinguishing certain letters. E.g., the tails on the sigmas are very short, so they often look like omicrons.

I rely on it mostly for writing, both compositions for class and letters to Greek relatives, so I more often am using the English-to-Greek section. It sometimes is difficult to find Greek translations of English-language idioms. Also, as to be expected, the dictionary is stronger on providing translations of idioms used by British speakers than it is with respect to American idioms.

Finally and most importantly, according to my native Greek professor who reads my writing, some of the Greek vocabulary provided by the dictionary, in both single words and idioms, is out-of-date and/or relatively stuff in its formality. Perhaps the out-of-date words are inevitable leftovers from previous editions. And perhaps the stuffiness comes from it being compiled by a British academic, though this speculation might merely be a product of my American prejudices. In any case, until a younger scholar produces a new Greek-English, English-Greek volume, or until I read something really good about any of the other volumes, this will have to do.

Format: Paperback
To entitle this dictionary "Greek-English English-Greek" is quite misleading, insofar as the English to Greek part at the end of the book is only about 60 pages long, versus 355 pages for the Greek to English part. Don't buy this dictionary if you need help in translating from English to Greek, it is quite useless. The Greek to English part, however, is satisfactory.

This dictionary is great! My boyfriend is from Greece and sometimes communication can be challenging. I'm a new student of Greek, and this has been an excellent resource. This dictionary has excellent word coverage. Everything I've searched for has been in the dictionary. Highly recommended!

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Douglas P. Murphy on July 4, 2010
Format: Paperback
This is my first dictionary in my attempts to read books and articles written in Modern Greek and for the most part it serves my purposes well. The words in Greek are easily accessed, for the most part available (i.e. most words I need to look up are present), and have definitions that fit well into whatever narrative I am reading. The book is fairly lightweight and portable but is a a little too large for a pocket (or at least my pockets). The words are in easily read bold print and the definitions are in a much fainter print that does not hold up too well for me in fainter light. The book stands up well to repeated use (no pages falling out so far). There is a section on pronunciation and the principal parts of some verbs but no extensive grammar section. Overall I am very happy with this book as a convenient reference.

This is a decent, solid dictionary. It has some typos, as in the very first page, but it has the words I need and the greek font it mostly clear. It was a good price, and so I recomend it, although I know better are out there!
