Reviews - What do customers think about Webster's New World Compact Japanese Dictionary: Japanese/Engish-English/Japanese?

Very limited  Jul 17, 2006
Actually more like 2.5 stars. Plusses: While organized by English alphabetical order, it gives kanji or kana as well. Minuses: Just not enough; not enough subdefinitions, not enough usage notes, and big time not enough words. I bought this because it was compact and I thought good for travel, but the place I'm living (in Japan) has the Oxford mini-dictionary, which is smaller in size and much more comprehensive. I've read other reviews and am going to check out the Langenscheidt too.

A word to the wise: The name Webster's, cannot be copyrighted, and thus is no guarantee of quality. I got burned on this one.
It's a dictionary but...  Nov 29, 2005
I took this thing with me on a trip to Japan...and found it to be totally useless. Of the ~60 words I looked up, I actually found 2...
What a joke.
not recommended  Mar 3, 2005
this dictionary does not even have the most basic words such as "mouth". it's a joke! i'm demanding my money back from Webster.
Simple but complete  Dec 30, 2004
Very useful if you are not used to look for words in kana. Easy to carry and complete for a basic use. Very recommendable for beginners.
This dictionary not recommended.  Aug 31, 2003
I have a degree in Japanese Studies, and have, in the past, instructed introductory Japanese. A friend of mine, to whom I am teaching some Japanese, got this dictionary. I was appalled at how many very basic words did not have entries in this dictionary. Simple words, like "koko" (which means "here") were missing. Many of the missing words that I had her trying to look up were so basic that when she first told me that the words were not in her dictionary, I thought she had just missed them, until I looked, myself, and verified their absence. If you are trying to learn Japanese, I suggest you choose another dictionary.
