    IPA

    This is one of the only dictionaries that I've encountered that actually has the IPA written out for pronunciation purposes. It's been so helpful as a voice student studying Italian diction.

    More than just a dictionary

    This is an absolutely wonderful reference. Translations include, not only, simple word substitutions, but also show common expressions and usages.

    I recomend this book

    This dictionary is packed with 100,000+ commonly used words. I recomend it if your a student, or if you plan on visiting Italy.

    wonderful for translating

    I found this dictionary extremely helpful for quick translating, especially of those words which are not generally found in simple phrase books. It has both Italian to English and English to Italian so that endless searches for a word are eliminated. Good for self taught Italian students, too.

    Need another one

    The lack of noun genders bugs me. I need to reference the internet or another book for some words that are not clear what gender they are.

    Also, I have encountered quite a few verbs where the first suggested Italiano verb is not the verb used in the context. I've needed to do a lot of 'fact-checking' elsewhere.

    Not great

    I wanted a dictionary that had many words, including conjugation of Italian verbs (not English verbs). I also found the pronuciation very difficult to use.

    New World Italian Dictionary

    I have found this dictionary useful in my use in learning the Italian language despite it being a bit confusing in the translation.
