Compared with Miandji's F-E/E-F Dictionary from Hippocrene and Dehghani's P-E/E-P Learner's Dictionary from Ibex, this dictionary is a godsend when it comes to completeness. It has a lot of entries, although it is lacking in slang, pejoratives, and less than polite usage. What makes this dictionary difficult to use, however, is the muddy, uneven and sometimes illegible print. This is more than a handicap, especially for the speaker of English who is not well versed in the Persian alphabet. Another weakness is the failure to use the vowel markers in the Persian translations. -- If they're there, you can't see them! -- I can understand why the Farsi-English volume might not have them, but this text should, at least in part, be directed at speakers of English who, unless somewhat advanced, need those marks.Was this review helpful?
