    5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!Useful for looking up words, but also assists in language learning
    This is by far the best Arabic-English Dictionary out there.It is based on Arabic's triletter root system, and not based on alphabetic order.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Major strengths of the book
    If you have the money and want to buy an Arabic-English dictionary, this one is the best there is.
    1-0 out of 5 stars poor quality of print
    The book is very small, which should have been an indication.Printed in India, most of the pages are blurred or faint printing.Not readable.A huge price for something unusable. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very handy and well-designed
    This is a useful phrasebook for the novice heading to Iraq for the first time. No Arabic script; a shame, but that seems to be the case with almost all such handbooks tailored to one dialect of Arabic. The almost pocket-sized booklet starts off with a description of the phonetic system and moves quickly to a few very basic elements of grammar, basic words, numbers, telling time, and common situations from greetings to arrival at the airport, checking in at a hotel, getting around town, food and drink, personal care, sight-seeing, visiting mosques, medical care, security situation, and timely police station and checkpoint dialogue. Nothing special in terms of military lingo, but handy sections on "searching a house" and handling "demonstrations". Prepared in 2004, but not with the occupation and post-occupation too much in mind, no mention of roadside bombs or beheadings, prisoners, or prisoner handling; almost as if Iraq were a normal country. Ends with a 1,000 word basic dictionary. At this price you can't go wrong by keeping a copy handy. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Beyond the Present Tense of Spanish and So Much More
    I am not a person that has a natural ability to learn languages. I started learning Spanish eight months ago without any previous experience learning the language. I just used 3 tools that got 4 or 5 stars reviews at a popular learning Spanish product review site. 501 Spanish verbs is one of the products. The second product was the Learning Spanish Like Crazy self-study course. And the third was a Spanish word or phrase book.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Verbs rule!
    We all know a million Spanish words. But if you can't conjugate a verb, you can't talk. I know tons of Spanish but I wasn't able to communicate well until I picked up this essential text. If there is one book for learning Spanish that you need, this is it. Verbs are the absolute core of the language, and since Spanish has no declensions as in Russian or German, you are going to learn the language a lot faster if you refer often to this reference. ...

    1-0 out of 5 stars Worst installation process
    I have never had a problem installing a program on my Dell Inspiron 9300. That is until I put this program in the drive. Though this laptop far exceeds all requirements and having followed the installation process exactly the program will not open once fully installed and restarted. I have installed and uninstalled it several times. I have closed out of any running programs, turned off virus protection, said several prayers in seven different religions--to no avail. I'm attempting to get a refund from Amazon over this. What a waste of time.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Say what, governor
    This is the ultimate referance on the English Language and while the cd versions is not perfect, the core is true.
    5-0 out of 5 stars every reader should own - once the software is redone
    I have wanted to own a copy of the OED ever since High School. I finally bought the CD version and wish I had bought it years ago. This is an essential resource for any serious reader.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fun to read, useful information, and makes a great gift
    This book hits a sweet spot for me.Paul Brians uses a common sense approach in discussing how we use and misuse our language.His approach is not fussy or full of rules.Instead, he uses humor and a light touch to help the reader develop a sense for what is proper and logical.He also helps us learn where we commonly fall into traps by mishearing and misusing words through regionalisms or simply similar sounding words.
    5-0 out of 5 stars It is really useful andentertaining.I love it!
    I usually don't review any of my purchases. But, this book is so captivating that I had to review it!
    2-0 out of 5 stars Too Basic
    The content is so elementary that this book cannot be considered a serious reference work for writers. Many of the "Common Errors" seem to have been made up in order to complete a targeted page count. If you already know the difference between "chunk" and "chuck," and know when to use "next door" instead of "next store" to convey your intended meaning, you can pass on this one. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars YOUR GUIDE TO GETTING PUBLISHED
    Back in 1991, I was studying creative writing under a published author. The one thing we learned was to expect an average 70 rejections no matter if were beginners or seasoned pros. So if you write something, and you send it to be published, and it is rejected...DON'T GIVE UP!!!
    5-0 out of 5 stars More Than A Reference - It Inspires
    You are a writer, and that's why you are reading this review. The same old question, "Can I justify purchasing this book?" I just received the deluxe version of this book, which is the regular book with a year of online access.

    Very contempory with updated word list and the extra photos, diagrams, etc. etc. etc. make this a fine choice for kids of all ages from 2 to 92.I am especially happy they included the 'hoopoe' in the bird category.We have many here in Thailand where I live.

    5-0 out of 5 stars very helpful
    My daughters are in the third grade and, we have found this dictionary to be very helpful. It is bright and colorful but, it contains quite a bit of information as well. It helps them not only when they are writing something (to look up the spelling of a word) but also to understand the meaning of words. It gives parts of speech, different tenses, and pronunciation of the word as well. I highly recommend it for anyone looking to buy a dictionary for children. I had bought the Scholastic First Dictionary also but, honestly, we did not use that one much at all. The Children's Dictionary is my pick, for sure.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect
    My son is in 3rd grade. Every week he has to read a new story & learn a list of words from that story. Yesterday, I received the dictionary. Paging through it, it's very easy follow. Every word that was on his list was in the dictionary & the definations were perfect for him to understand. My son also said that they use the same dictionary in his classroom. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars My favorite
    I am an EFL teacher and have dictionaries of different publishers. MW9 was my first dictionary of a kind and it started the life-long romance with this beautiful piece of lexicography. The 11th edition is a step forward,the only thing lacking being the list of colleges and universities in US and Canada, which I do miss. Otherwise, the only competition this dictionary can have is the new edition of Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary by OUP, but I still think MW11 is more up-to-date and interesting to use.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Missing some stuff
    I bought this dictionary for the CD ROM that comes with it.Websters makes by far the best computer dictionary available and when you combine it with the computer thesaurus you have a very powerful writing tool.

    4-0 out of 5 stars The "official" word on what's acceptable
    The official scrabble dictionary (OSD) serves its purpose: it is the authority when settling disputes. The make quality is that of your average mass market paperback, and so is the price. The definitions, on the other hand, are really perfunctory (but what do you expect?). Some words in the dictionary, like Za, Ka, and Ai, are surprising because they're not found in the commonly owned dictionaries. This makes playing with the OSD a different game, one in which it pays to memorize these little words.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best current reference on Arabic
    In 39 crisp chapters covering more than 700 pages Ryding organizes both the grand lines and essential details of Arabic language structure and grammar. This is a highly readable, easily searched linguistic reference. The index really does the job and her list of references alone is a significant academic contribution. Finally, this gem will make life easier for both students of Arabic and researchers. All my thumbs are up for this once in a lifetime linguistic treasure.

    5-0 out of 5 stars breath-taking

    4-0 out of 5 stars Oxford-River English-Thai Dictionary plugs the gaps
    At last an excellent and truly comprehensive English Thai dictionary.Arguably its best feature is the wealth of common expressions it includes under most listed words, expressions that frequently have no literal construction or translation but are essential to easy and natural conversation.The alphebetically positioned special explanation panels - eg. forms of address in letter writing, the use numerals etc. -are a very worthwhile inclusion as well.One suggestion for the next edition would be a phonetic rendition of theprimary Thai translation of the listed English word - given the implied vowels that feature in many Thai words this improvement would be warmly welcomed and at least for this reader would immediately propel his rating from four to five stars.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very useful!
    An amazing piece of work! It is probably the only one of its kind in the market. It is particularly good for Thai speakers, but it can also help non-native learners trying to learn Thai. Although it is just English-Thai (with no Thai-English section), as long as you can manage to read the Thai (no transliterations) you can get a lot from it. Each entry has many examples of both literal-like (real, but close to the English in their form) and (more interestingly) "functional" Thai equivalents to the English. And these examples seem to be quite real and natural (linguistically "trustable" Thai friends report). Other Thai dictionaries often present Thai sentences that are so improvable... It has been cleverly made to include many multi-purpose sentences in most entries; so in entries like, say, "do" you find very useful Thai equivalents to "Do something to someone", "Is there anything I can do to help?", "Have nothing to do", "What is that/he doing here?", "What am I going to do?" and so on. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for new arrivals
    I purchased this book for a new Mexican friend, who recently moved to the U.S. for two years and speaks practically no English, while I know a smattering of Spanish. We've found it to be invaluable in helping us communicate. When it's obvious that she isn't understanding me, I can turn to the appropriate page--the kitchen, for example--and point to the picture, and she can do the same. Then we work on her pronunciation of the English word. I will probably purchase another one for myself to help me strengthen my Spanish skills. I would also consider the other language titles to correspond with those my sons are studying in school. The format is user-friendly, the color illustrations are happy, and the categories of words are vast and extremely practical--especially helpful to someone struggling to get by in a new country. My friend showed the book to her ESL teacher and was very proud when the instructor recommended the book to the rest of the class!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great picture dictionary
    What makes this dictionary so great is that it is not in alphabetical order and it is based on themes.For example, there is a classroom theme on a page and all of the words that have to do with what is in a classroom.Also, I like the fact that their are numbers next to the object and then all of the words in Spanish and English are at the bottom half of the page.This allows you to cover up all of the words and quiz yourself.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Essential Dictionary of Real Estate
    Useful book, especially when I'm stuck for an understandable definition of a real estate term. Some of the definitions are different than those given in the real estate class I'm taking. Then again, some terms have more than one definition, and both are correct. Not state-specific. This is for national.

    4-0 out of 5 stars reluctant buyer
    as a first time property buyer i was getting bogged down in a lack of language skills. Nothing meant what I thought it did. The Essential Dictionary of Real Estate cleared that up for me and I was able to procede with confidence ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars searching for all the words
    Even with the invention of the internet, every house should have a dictionary.There's a couple books everyone should have, and the dictionary is one of them.The Merriam-Webster Dictionary is small enough to fit inside a small cabinet, but big enough to find most of the words you want to search for.
    4-0 out of 5 stars This is the one I always seem to reach for first..........
    I have a old hard cover Webster's collegiate dictionary that my parents gave me before I went to college sitting under my bed.I also have a huge 2 volume Oxford Shorter English dictionary gathering dust in my closet.I even have a unabridged Random House dictionary on the very computer I am writing this review on.I use all of the above occasionally, but the one I use the most is this little paperback dictionary that sits on my desk beside my bed.It usually has what I'm looking for and I rarely have to use one of the bigger dictionaries.The size is nice and it is light weignt so it is easy to carry around if you have to.If you need a small desk dictionary this is a good one.
    3-0 out of 5 stars no deal on the price
    What can I say about the book? The M-W Dictionary is a widely used tool book and especially useful for preparing GRE. So I gave these 3 stars to the book.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great beginner book
    I used Alif Baa (with DVDs) in Arabic 101 at the University of Maryland (Baltimore County) and it's probably the best beginner book I have encountered.The DVDs are great and add a lot to the text and exercises.It even shows a chart with the letters, and you can click on the appropriate character to hear and show someone pronouncing it in several different voices.Great idea.Lots of exercises to listen to and write down.And, for $5, there's an answer key to Alif Baa which will help an awful lot if you want to teach yourself.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good starter book for Arabic
    I've taken Spanish and Russian, so I'm no stranger to learning a new language. I have had some rudimentary Arabic that was based on phonetics, so I never really learned the letters. This book drills in each letter with repetition, so you write each letter multiple times, and utilize it in words so you know the initial, medial, and final positions. The book isn't perfect, and without a solution manual you are in the dark as to whether you are getting the dictation down right. I would receommend either taking an Arabic class (as I am doing) that uses this book or buying the solutions manual to go it alone. As my instructor states, this book and Al Kitaab #1 are the foundation, if you can make it through these books you are on your way, but it isn't easy. If I had to do this on my own, I would be taking longer, but the intense schedule of the class is keeping the words and letters fresh in my brain. Bottom line, if you are buying this for school, it's good to go. If you are buying it to go it alone, get the solution manual.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A fabulous series
    This book is such an improvement over what was the previous standard:the Orange Book from Michigan.It is not too technical and comes with nicely done DVDs.This and the companion 'Al-Kitab' are elementary and intermediate courses together.There is also an answer key (separate purchase) which I would recommend.

    2-0 out of 5 stars accurate - not always
    The point when using any reference book is to expand on understanding and to get the true sense of the subject under study.This "Strongest" Strong's concordance falls short of this, as it apparently uses personal bias in its definitions (and comments), i.e. cross - 'stauros - cross, cross'. Research is for accurate knowledge. I was very disappointed.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Only Concordance Needed!
    If you are a fan of the NIV Bible then this is the best book to have along with it.This exhaustive concordance has everything you need to study the words in the NIV bible.It includes the Hebrew and Greek dictionaries.This is a must have book for your bible study needs!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Worth the price if you use NIV translation.
    The Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek dictionaries are done very well, compared to the old Strong's Concordance I have. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent, comprehensive,and easy to use
    The Manual is a complete guide to the AMA style and also an excellent grammar book.The topics are easy to find and the tables and lists are comprehensive.It is a great companion to The Chicago Manual of Style because it details the grammar preferred by the AMA and contains needed terminology.This is a necessary reference for medical publications proofreaders and editors.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A style manual you will rarely close
    The specific goal of the American Medical Association Manual of Style: A Guide for Authors and Editors is to codify and collect the myriad instructions, rules, and dictums that AMA applies to the many journals, books, and other publications that are printed under its imprint. The more general goal, perhaps not stated, is to broaden the influence of those standards so they encompass more of the medical publishing community. 5-0 out of 5 stars thank you cheryl �verson for that work

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Dictionary
    I have had other dictionaries, however for getting to the grass roots meaning of a particular word, this is the dictionary to have on the bookshelf. It settles all disputes over the correct meaning of words.The CD Rom is excellent as I have it loaded in both my home computer and work laptop.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best dictionary for the non-fanatic
    I did a fair bit of internet research reading to try to determine what the best dictionary was in the $100-$150 range.For the non-fanatic, this 2-volume set covers pretty much everything you need.If you are a word fanatic, then drop $1000 on the 20-volume OED.The layout of the Shorter OED (think "unabridged") is superb, and the entries are up-to-date, unlike the "new" editions of some competing dictionaries.You can't go wrong with this purchase.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Search no more for the perfect dictionary!
    Although it arrives in two volumes, it is nonetheless, a near definitive guide for all words English. If you suspect the fellow Scrabble players of cheating, this will be your source. ... Read more
