Reviews - What do customers think about Webster's New World Pocket Dictionary?
Concise, but not complete Oct 25, 2005
I often use my dictionary and wanted a small one to take along when I travel. This one sounded about right. However, on my last trip I found that the definitions are limited and not necessarily what I'm looking for. For the size and the price, it is satisfactory, but it doesn't compare with a full-sized dictionary.
Good but by no means comprehensive Oct 26, 2004
This truly is a pocket dictionary. The small size and soft durable cover makes it easy to carry with you. The font is easy on the eyes and quite readable considering how many definitions are packed into one page. It has, however, let me down quite a few times. I generally need a dictionary to help with difficult or uncommon words and this dictionary tends to leave a lot of those out. I don't really need to carry around the definitions of cat, dog, table, coffee cup, bowling alley, etc. I need definitions to words like affiance and velleity, the last two of the long list of words I looked up that were not in this dictionary. If you have a pretty good grasp of Basic English and are looking for a pocket dictionary of difficult words, this isn't it.

An Amazing Reference Book Jul 6, 2000
This pocket dictionary is very user-friendly and concise. It is accessible to me at all times. As a high school student, I am very busy and at times, I cannot reach for a normal hardcover dictionary, so this pocket dictionary is perfect. Not only does it give the pronunciation, syllable breaks, and definition, but it also has an appendix giving common abbreviations, alternate spellings, accents, and it even features innumerable encyclopedic references! This dictionary has it all and more, and its compact size offers even better usability. If you find yourself frequently grabbing for an accessible reference book, this is the one!
