Review – Oxford Essential Arabic Dictionary (English-Arabic, Arabic-English)

By Adil James

This is Oxford University Press’s English-Arabic dictionary.

The book is a handy size, not a tome.  It is less than 400 pages long, and approximately 5″ X 9″.  The perfect size to adorn a bookshelf without overburdening it.

We were sent this review copy by Oxford University Press with the agreement that we would write a fair review.

The dictionary has been useful to the TMO office staff–we have used it to look up unfamiliar Arabic words.  Beyond that it is just a dictionary, and while it appears to be a good one it is difficult to write a review about a dictionary.

I plan to keep this dictionary handy, and I don’t plan to buy another dictionary to replace it, so that is about as good an endorsement as I can give.
