Impractical Ornament 21 Jun. 2010
By Dr. Chuang Wei Ping - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a facsimile reproduction of an 1858 work.

The title, oddly enough, does not trigger a spelling and grammar check alert, and is kosher. Bibliolife gives this resurrection a lovely crystal coated cover. The pages are white and solid. The print looks like it came off an offset machine. Physically, it is a pretty ornament.

If you cannot read Bengali script, this dictionary is entirely useless. There is the English word, followed by Bengali script. There is no Romanised version of the Bangladeshi word, so it is useless for practical purposes. As a historical document, it is a lovely reproduction, looks nice and smells good.

When sitting on the shelf, the crystal coated spine and cover looks awesome. Impresses all my Bangladeshi visitors.

Having learnt my lesson, I will not buy any dictionary with native script unless it specifically mentions Romanised pronunciation. Tuttle even has an English-Japanese dictionary that has nothing but Romanised script, with not a single kanji letter to be found.

So far, I have not found an English-Bangladeshi dictionary which has a Romanised pronouncing key for the Bangladeshi words. The rest, like Samsad, are one star grotty affairs, with third world paper. This one is just as useless but, at least, is pretty.
An old dictionary, but quite good for its time. 14 Sept. 2013
By Thomas Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a very old English-Bengali dictionary, so of course it does not have modern words like airport or computer. The pronunciation of the Bengali words is not given, which is a shame, since the spelling of Bengali is not very phonetic. The pronunciation of the English words is not provided either, except to give the stress. There is no grammatical information about English words, like irregular past tense. For Bengali this is not really needed, as the language is very regular, and has no gender for example. So if you want to use it for example to look up Bengali words for animals, or other subjects that are not modern, for example if you want to compare the words with words in dictionaries of other Indo-Aryan languages, or to write letters about non-modern subjects, it is a useful dictionary. But it is very outdated.
