Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up-This handy dictionary includes an "eticket" for a free, downloadable version for use on computers, PDAs, and smartphones. Students of either language will find that the book's 100,000 words and phrases, German to American English and American English to German, are comprehensive and current and will more than suffice for beginning and intermediate usage. The grammar guide (mainly for students of German), while not encyclopedic, conveys the essential parts of a notoriously opaque subject succinctly and clearly. Instead of listing every rule and exception, it presents generalities that will allow students to get by. Unfortunately, many examples are given in German only. This is also the case with phrases in the main body of the dictionary. For example, under "the," the phrase "the colder it got, the more she shivered" is translated as "je kälter es würde, desto mehr zitterte sie," and users will have no way of knowing that "je . . . desto . . . " means "the . . . the . . . ." Front and back matter explain how to use the dictionary and its phonetic symbols, and provide color maps and lists of numerals; weights, measures, and temperatures; and geographical names. Particularly useful are lists of "False Friends," words that are used in both languages but do not have the same meaning, such as the German "gift," meaning "poison." A worthy addition.-Henrietta Thornton-Verma,School Library Journal
