Los diccionarios Oxford son los mejores, para cualquier idioma En este caso necesitabamos para el colegio y cumple su funci n de maravillas, tanto para los mas b sicos como para los avanzados. idiom The Oxford English Hebrew Dictionary contains Comprehensive coverage from slang and colloquialisms to technical and scientific terminology This mammoth of a book contains over 1000 pages However I was slightly disappointed by this English Hebrew dictionary Besides the fact that it is only English Hebrew not Hebrew English this can be a hard to follow enigma The words are so numerous the reader can spend hours searching for the correct word Most every word has sub phrases e.g at random I chose the word collaborate below it I found work together work for the enemy I also noticed as I was flipping through this book that it contains many curse words Not only does this book contain a plethora of words but it contains associated phrases Besides containing words that I never thought I d hear probably lay in the deep ravine of my mind this book doesn t contain much of anything There is a short 3 page pronunciation guide a 4 pages introduction Overall if you re looking for an English Hebrew dictionary that will contain almost any word you can think of then this is the dictionary for you I believe this dictionary is for the advanced scholar not for the average student However in its field there is no better English Hebrew dictionary, just beware that is for the advanced scholars. Though some may disagree, I find this dictionary perfectly suitable to those who are learning Hebrews, be it Biblical or modern The Niqqud in the Hebrew abjad is very helpful in enabling the learners to get the pronunciation right Simply the best dictionary in its category. It is difficult to use because of small Hebrew print and it does not provide a phonetic translation If you know the Hebrew word, you cannot look up the English translation I would not recommend this book for an English speaking person It may be OK for a Hebrew speaker who wants to look up an English word.
