Reviews - What do customers think about Milet Bilingual Visual Dictionary: English-Turkish (Turkish Edition)?
Nothing but Technical Jargon Dec 14, 2007
I thought this would be a viable alternative to more common visual dictionary series, such as the First 1000 Words (which, unfortunately, is not available in Turkish).
Unfortunately, however, this book isn't exactly a standard item at your local bookstore, so I bought it sight unseen... and I was sorely disappointed.
Aside from a few categories, such as animals, body parts, and vegetables, there just isn't a lot of basic vocabulary in this book. The vast majority of the book is devoted to technical terms which are not only superfluous for most language learners, but in some cases are so obscure that I didn't even know the term in English.
For instance: Do you want to know how to say "transept spire" in Turkish? Or perhaps "slip joint pliers"? Maybe you need to buy replacement "side panel molding" for your car, or describe a problem with the "viewfinder adjustment keys" on your camcorder. In case you're a flight engineer, you might need terms like "nose landing gear," "tail skid," or "pallet loader." For all of you nuclear technicians, you might need to know the Turkish words for "heat transport pump" and "condenser backwash outlet."
Overall, this book is great if you're looking for a job in Turkey as an astronaut, architect, plant biologist, professional athlete, or geotechnical engineer. But for those of you who are just trying to learn some basic, essential, core vocabulary: forget it.
An amazing book Oct 24, 2007
This book has everything you could think of and more. It gets into specifics such as not only shoes but tennis shoes, pumps, loafers, etc. Everything from the stars to ecology to animals to things around the house to kinds of tools. This is one of the most usefull translation/dictionary books I have seen. If you like to visualized instead of reading a word this is very helpful.
