4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Reading Aid, April 12, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a reading aid rather than a research tool; it is perfect for quickly looking up words while reading but does not offer any extra linguistic information. The entries are concise, giving you the translation of the word without having to sort through extraneous data. No etymologies or examples are given, and vowels are not marked as long as short. This makes it extremely easy to read as the text is large and clear, while keeping the volume itself slim. The accents are marked, which makes the words instantly readable. Anyone with a basic knowledge of how Latin vowels and accents work should be able to look at the word and know how to pronounce it, despite the lack of vowel markings. The book is solidly built, if quite plain, with nice, heavier paper. This is all substance over style; after the three page preface then the rest is all definitions, with a short appendix at the end which explains some of the terms in more detail. Completely utilitarian, it is perfect as a quick reading aid.
