    an excellent resource

    I spent a fustratingly long time looking for a dictionary that was both Japanese - English and English - Japanese. Strangely enough, a surprising amount of Japanese dictionaries on the market are only one-way, which is no good to the average Japanese language student. But I had to look no further than Langenscheidt's Pocket Japanese Dictionary -- another respectable entry into their library of foreign language dictionaries. It's small, yet includes a wide range of words. The soft cover won't easily crease when you throw it into your bag on the way to class. The type is legible and printed on bright white paper. The more complex Kanji CAN be difficult to read due to the somewhat small print, but it's not a huge issue if you have the right companion (I recommend Kodansha's Kanji Learner's Dictionary; ISBN: 4770023359). Like many dictionaries, it lists words in Romanji and is organized alphabetically according to the English alphabet. I've read comments from users who are vehemently against this system, but I find it makes looking up words easier. The foreign loan words are always written in Katakana to distinguish them. And, as stated previously, Kanji is used throughout. Unfortunately, Langenscheidt's Pocket Japanese Dictionary is not perfect. I wish the class of verbs was listed with their entries (the 'i/e-column as second class' rule is not foolproof) and that a table of verb conjugations was included as an appendix. I don't expect a dictionary to educate me on grammar (that's what my $65 textbook is for) but classifying verbs would have helped CONSIDERABLY. I've yet to find a Japanese dictionary as good (or as reasonably priced) as this one, so I'm enthusiastically giving it four stars. Yes, that's as enthusiastic as I get.
