I bought this after reading the other two reviews which said it was comprehensive and good for the student, which I'm sure it is. However, in order to be able to read the Bulgarian words you would first have had to have mastered the alphabet and all the varying pronunciations. As an absolute beginner to the language this dictionary is no use at all. There is no guide on the pronunciation of each word next to it as I had expected. So, until I've mastered the whole alphabet I would only be able to use this dictionary by pointing at the word! Of use only to people who can pronounce, and understand, the alphabet. Might be of use to me in a couple of years! Very disappointing and now I'll have to pay for another one - with a pronunciation guide - if I ever find one that is.
