In looking through the other reviews, I'm shocked that nobody mentioned the little errors. It's riddled with little spelling mistakes. For example, on pg 316, library is taught as "maktaba" and this is true, but the Arabic spelling renders the word as "maktab", which is desk. It's missing the taa marboota letter at the end. Chocolate, on pg 249, has a haa at the end instead of the taa marboota (the difference is just two dots), which makes it read as "sheekoolathu". There are also a few questionable transliterations, such as dog on pg 269. The English reads as "kalb", when it's more like "kelb", but it's enough for an Arab to think you mean the human heart ("qalb"). On pg 294, the English for hand reads "ayaadin" when it should be "ayaad", however, the Arabic is correct. A few places have a noun labeled as a verb. The difference is as little as the taa marboota at the end.

This book is advertised on the back as written for students, travelers, journalists and politicians. What it doesn't say is that it's ideal for Christian missionaries as well. This is just my position. It has the translations (correctly) for words like angel, the Bible, chorus, Christian, cross, crusade, Easter, flock, flood, hymn, priest, prophet, Protestant, proverb and the Noble Quran. My only issue with the Christian vocabulary is that its translation for Christmas and birthday is the same word. Birthday is "meelaad" and Christmas is "al-meelaad" (THE birth). Being unaware of this could make one wish merriment in completely the wrong way.

Still, for its price and thickness, it makes a handy, concise guide that was just right for me. The back and front contain little charts listing important things like numbers, the alphabet and denonyms. You could survive in the Middle East with this book and learn a lot but you should already know the alphabet before buying it.

I enjoyed using this book when I was learning arabic. This book was a very good "starter" arabic dictionary from which I turned to the Hans Wers arabic dictionary in order to become more accurate and gramatically correct for writting. This book makes it very easy to translate basic everyday words that I would need when I first began to learn arabic. The small size of the book makes it handy to simply pull out in a moments notice if I forgot how to spell a word or if I had forgotten an arabic word alltogether. Half of the book is arabic to english, and then the other half, english to arabic translated. Thus, this is useful for both english and arabic learners. This book makes a good companion dictionary, but you will certainly need a more decisive dictionary if you will be learning arabic in a more extensive manor. Good Buy, I would recommend.

Please ask questions, I will respond.

Awde and Smith's ARABIC PRACTICAL DICTIONARY, Arabic-English, English-Arabic, is the perfect dictionary for university students in beginning and intermediate Arabic courses. First of all, it has an up-to-date vocabulary (2004 publication), and it fits their budgets, as it's very inexpensive, compared to most university textbooks today; and it also contains almost everything they'll need in the way of grammatical points. The Arabic-English section is great training for students just beginnning to look up words using the Arabic script. The Arabic words are also transliterated, and I am a great believer in transliteration (if it's used correctly). Transliteration will solve any reading problems a student might have and allow that student to refocus quickly on the Arabic script with the right pronunciation in his or her head. Noun plurals are given and this is especially helpful with the broken plurals in Arabic. Any vowel changes that occur in the various forms of the verbs are also listed. Other, larger, dictionaries are available for advanced study, but this one works extremely well in the beginning.

I was enrolled in an intensive, 20-hour/week Arabic class, and I was in serious need of a good dictionary that I could carry around in my backpack. I probably went through at least 10 dictionaries from other well known publisher and some travel guides, but most turned out to be terrible (mixing different local dialects, mispelling or not adhering to romanization, etc).
This dictionary has a very large selection of useful words, and I found it to be the easiest and most convenient dictionary to carry around for the serious Arabic learner.
I would also recommenend this dictionary in conjunction with a small phrase book for tourists as well.

I had another Arabic dictionary, the Merriam-Webster paperback, which had small print and unclear indenting, making it difficult to see what was a related word versus a whole new entry. This dictionary has larger, clearer print, and unambiguous indenting to make it clear which words are grouped together. I find it a useful companion for learning Arabic.

I had previously purchased "Compact" dictionaries and my students told me they were useless. My students like this one though, it is not too large and does not get in their way on their desks, but it has what they need to help them. It is also cost effective as many of these Arabic dictionaries can be expensive. I did a bunch of research before purchasing and am happy with this decision.

This is the best Arabic Dictionary available. Great condition.
