Reviews - What do customers think about English-Russian Dictionary : Phrasebook of Love?
Excellent tool for students and "lovers" of Russian Feb 22, 2007
the English-Russian Dictionary-Phrasebook of Love is an essential tool for students of the Russian language and for anyone romantically involved with a Russian native speaker. The dictionary covers: main words i.e., a generous amount of romantic words and phrases (about 700 pages of words, terms and phrases) in alphabetical order.
The dictionary also includes sub-categories (terms & phrases under a main word), each word listed is followed by its abbreviated parts of speech, (n for nouns, V for verbs), the use of accents so that the students learning Russian can practice proper stress, and equally or more importantly, it differentiates between women's and men's speech. Lastly, as a previous reviewer stated, the dictionary contains 21 appendices that cover subject from Russian grammar, time zones, metric measurements, and clothing sizes to common Russian female names and nicknames.
If you are romantically involved with a Russian native speaker and desire to impress him or her with a starry-eyed phrase in the Russian language, this book is for you. However, a word to the wise - this book provides Russian phrases using the Cyrillic alphabet, so some mastery of the Russian language is expected. Worth the money.
Phrasebook of Love is an understatement! Nov 28, 2003
I have been attempting to learn Russian now for a year and a half. This book has proven to be very helpful both in learning new terms, but also the complexities of Russian Grammar. The premise of this book is to teach someone not just how to write in Russian, but to write it in a manner to convey emotional and passiontate feelings. It takes a little time to get the feel of the book and how to use it, but once you get started, it has many phrases that you can pull out of the entries, and use with others. If you are looking for a book to learn Russian with, this book is more suitable for those who have gotten past the basics of pronounciation and reading the Russian alphabet, an advanced beginner or intermediate Russian student. However, it really brings out the ideas once you start.
Too Bad...so promising....so difficult Oct 3, 2003
What a disappoint this book is....BUT....for one reason and one reason only....the russian translation IS IN THE RUSSIAN ALPHABET!!!! Do you believe it????...and not a word about how to pronounce the words.....other than that....this is the BEST book around for the volume and variety of love phrases..unfortunately, it is worthless for me as I wanted to be able to say the words...not spend an hour getting the English alphabet Translation of the written Russian alphbet translation..so...if your honey is right next to you and you can show her the Russian equivilant you are home free...otherwise you'll be out of luck on this one....darn!!!

Sweet book! It has almost everything. Jul 17, 2002
First off, I couldn't believe that there were enough people who had Russian girlfriends/boyfriends/spouses or whatever to write a dictionary just for them. Hey, but there is - and I am one of them. The book has everything you need. When I first opened it I was disappointed it was all written in Russian. I was hoping that they could write the sentences with english letters - but that was OK, because they give you a great Russian Alphabet cutout page. I only had it for a few hours and I was already learning how to say phrases like "I pray I never lose you" and write out in complete Russian "I would like to be the lucky person in this world who teaches you what kind of magic a kiss can hold." I must note that before this I had never heard or seen Russian with a hint of understanding. For a guy who only knows German and English, this book does miracles in the tough language of Russian. This is definetly a must if your love is from Russia!
