Choice Review

Although dictionaries of languages that international politics has forced into prominence may exert a certain appeal for libraries, they should be purchased with care. For this Azerbaijani-English bilingual dictionary, the vocabulary is small (about 4,000 headwords in the English-Azerbaijani section, about 3,100 in the Azerbaijani-English), definitions are brief (usually single-word synonymies), and pronunciations are given in a transcription for which no key is provided. A sister work from the same publisher, Nikolina Uzicanin's Bosnian-English, English-Bosnian Dictionary (1995), is also small (something over 5,000 headwords in each section) but gives a brief key to the pronunciation of Bosnian, although the compiler insists that "each sound is represented by its own letter, and each letter is pronounced consistently"--a claim that will amuse students who have heard it made by teachers of Russian. In the same series are dictionaries for Armenian, Hungarian, Japanese, and Russian, which were not seen for this review. Despite their restricted scope, the dictionaries for Azerbaijani and Bosnian may be useful in libraries that collect broadly in language dictionaries or that support these particular languages, but selectors should not expect from them more than a rudimentary approach to the language.
