4.0 out of 5 stars Very Interesting 8 May 2010
By Carmin A. Politano - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A Comprehensive Etymological Dictionary of the Hebrew Language by Ernest Klein is by far the best dictionary available because it not only provides a translation, but it also provides the reason for the translation or what could be called its "literal meaning". While the Visual Dictionary, like most, does not provide any such information, is unique because it is not in alphabetical order (although very good tables of contexts and indexes are provided). It is for general study, defining nouns that a communicator of a language would be expected to understand. Good not only for learning hebrew, but also for becoming generally knowledgeable of english as well. Everyone should have a book like this. Why have it in english only?

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely Useful! 15 Dec 2004
By Katherine - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This visual Hebrew-English dictionary is perfect for when you just don't know the name of a term. Or when you have an idea of the category, but need to fid out what the particular item is. as the Modern language Journal said, "such an important potential resource to teachers and learners that we may soon wonder who we ever managed without it."
4.0 out of 5 stars Great Reference Tool With a Few Slight Shortcomings 24 Oct 2013
By Bobby Viera - Published on Amazon.com

I love this visual dictionary except for three things: I am a still a beginner in Hebrew, so it would make it a LOT easier to learn and remember the words if there was an Anglicised transliteration underneath each word with the stressed syllables in bold or caps (like in a Berlitz phrase book). Second, the words are very small and this only makes it worse for me as a beginner because it's hard to distinguish some of the vowel points (I am thankful that they are included, however, and I understand that the small words make it possible to cover a lot of material on each page). My third issue is that it is all black and white with no color, which is a little disappointing to me after seeing other visual dictionaries Jean-Claude Corbeil has worked on which had full-color pictures and glossy pages (I realize that this is not always possible with different publishers, but it's nice when you are accustomed to it). Ultimately, the usefulness of this book far outweighs its shortcomings, and it provides vocabulary for thousands of everyday and technical things. I think I would use it more often and have a much easier time learning those words if they were presented in a more beginner-friendly way.
