Library Journal Review

Handy and affordable, this Arabic/English dictionary covers 3000 frequently used conversational words. Arabic script and its transliterated, phonetically expressed Roman form appear side by side. A valuable pronunciation guide opens the book. The book's diminutive size prevents entries from acknowledging subtle distinctions understood by native speakers and makes no reference to the idiosyncrasies of regional dialect. It also offers comparatively literal translations. The no-frills character of its entries makes the book best suited for quick reference on the street or in conversation. For translation and correspondence, a more comprehensive bidirectional reference is suggested. Recommended for collections supporting ESL classes and corporate and military functions.
