German Dictionary Jul 9, 2005
This dictionary comes in very handily when translating letters from my family and friends in Germany.
the best, period Feb 18, 2004
I have studied a lot of languages, and so I've bought a lot of dictionaries. This is by far the best one I have ever used. It goes way beyond the basics, has plenty of idiom, and even archaic words/phrases, all of which is great for the beginner/intermediate student and essential to advanced ones. If you buy this dictionary, you won't need any others. It's worth the price.
GOOD OLD WINE: BUT LACK OF UPDATE SINCE 1978 IS WORRISOME. Mar 22, 2003
In taking care of daily conversational idioms and phrases, this "Cassell's German Dictionary" did not forget technical and professional terms. It is complete in every sense a dictionary in its class should be. Invaluable pronounciation guides featured in both English and German: thus making it a suitable learning tool for either an English native or a German one. What makes this lexicon so endearing is the way it simplified all those complex verbs, which are notorious barriers for anyone learning German grammar. Also, with over 1,430 pages, the listed price of this dictionary is very reasonable. However, potential buyers may be greatly discouraged by the fact that this dictionary has not been updated since 1978. Except for antique-geeks, nobody would fancy buying a dictionary that is older than him or her.
Throw the others out... Sep 17, 2002
I'm currently taking a Survey of Theological German course at a small, liberal arts college. I fought with smaller dictionaries for weeks, but could never find the words I needed. After consulting with the Professor, he told me to throw the others out, and go buy a Cassell's. This dictionary is absolutely indisposable -- it provides me with the old meanings I need for this class (and can't find anywhere else!), but proves equally useful with modern idioms.
The best reader's German-English dictionary Apr 3, 2001
I'm very sorry to see a couple previous reviews that seemed to expect more of a conversational or technical dictionary. Cassell's is unquestionably the best for reading essays, stories, novels and poetry (until you have enough knowledge to need only occasional reference to an all-German dictionary like Wahrig's for the occasional mysterious word). There is a British bias, mostly in the English-to-German part, but it seems quite modest. I've used my copy (of a previous edition) for more than 30 years. This is an essential tool for any English speaker studying German in school, college, or independently. I'd rate it at least one "star" better than comparable Langenscheidt or Oxford/Duden products.
