Overview


This thoroughly tested reference work provides an unusually comprehensive guide to the reading, speaking, and writing of Russian for both advanced and beginning students. Using the new orthography, it is most useful for literary, scientific, political, and commercial translation.
Over 70,000 entries are provided in the orthography, with full information on accentuation and grammatical classifications. All important shades of meaning are given under each word, with many idiomatic uses and colloquialisms. Irregular verbs are listed in tables for both languages, while individual entries indicate stems, transitiveness, perfective and imperfective aspects, conjugation, and both regular and irregular sounds changes. Genders, sound changes, irregularities, plurals are indicated for nouns, while irregular adjectives are given in both positive and comparative forms. Prepositional entries indicate cases governed. This is one of the very few dictionaries where accent changes within the conjugation of verbs and the declension of nouns are fully indicated.
Other features include pronunciation instruction, translations of first names and geographical terms. English words are provided with Russian phonetic transcriptions. A conversion table analyzes older Russian nonmetric weights and measurements, while a bibliography lists more specialized Russian-English dictionaries.
"One of the best for … students, … extensive grammatical aids present an advantage not shared by any other such dictionary." — Professor E. J. Simmons, Cornell University.

I bought this Nook version of the dictionary, having used the hard copy for years in study. The nook version was a major disappointment. So many spelling mistakes in the Russian I have lost count. Hundreds so far. It must be a bug in the nook version. This version it mostly unusable. I got a refund from Nook on this and you will ask for one too, if you make the mistake of buying this.
