2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing but better than nothing 24 Feb 2001
Format:Paperback
The book is certainly a handy size - pocket sized. But there are some glaring omissions - the introduction says it is good for Ttravellers, business people and students - but it doesn't include 'hello', good morning/afternoon/day - in fact I can find no greeting at all. Not good for travellers or business people. Also toilet and lavatory are not included. I know as an american book it does not include English usage - but I am not convinced that my Lithuanian colleagues will understand when I ask for the 'bathroom' - it would be very helpful to have toilet or WC or lavatory in reserve if 'bathroom is not understood. Interestingly the lithuanian word for 'room' is not in the Lithuanian section. Strange. However it does include funeral and xylograph - which I am sure will be useful as a business traveller!
I also do not think that the phonetic guide is very good. e.g. it says that the Lithuanian 'a' is pronounced as in 'must' but when looking in the dictionary the pronunciation for words containing 'a' show the pronunciation as 'a' - which another part of the guide says is pronounced as in 'act'. Not well constructed. However the print and layout are very clear and uncluttered. Disappointing but better than nothing!

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing 23 April 2008
Format:Paperback
I found this very inadequate and confusing. For instance, the gender of nouns is not given, nor the third person forms of verbs, which allocates the verb to type 1, 2 or 3 and allows you to work out the rest of the tenses and persons. The choice of vocabulary is strange, and when you try to check back on the different meanings of words the synonyms are often not included. In my opinion do not waste your money. Spend a bit more and get a more adequate dictionary with grammatical notes and more consistency.

Handy source for phrases and common questions. Also, has excellent phonetic guide. Uses "upper-class" language rather than common.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother 14 July 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I was looking for an inexpensive but fairly comprehensive Lithuanian-English English-Lithuanian dictionary. This isn't it. Although the dictionary claims to have 8000 terms in each language, many common English words, like "contrast" for example, aren't in here. The word "reveal" is listed only as a noun, no reference to the verb. Also there was apparently no attempt to have all of the Lithuanian terms which are given in the English section, listed in the Lithuanian section. Consequently the Lithuanian word "atrasti", given as a term for "reveal" (noun) is not listed in the Lithuanian section. There is a pronunciation guide at the beginning of the book which is helpful, especially because Lithuanian appears to me to be a pretty phonetic language, unlike English. There are no phrases, no grammar. Don't bother with this one.

1.0 out of 5 stars There are much better dictionaries 25 July 2000
By "kondrenas" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I learned to speak Lithuanian in Lithuania and found this dictionary to be entirely disappointing. While the compact size is nice, there are infinitely better Lithuanian dictionaries available. There are a lot of mistranslations and some of the pronunciation keys are out in leftfield. This isn't a higher form of Lithuanian, just an out-moded form. The Bronius Piesarskas/Bronius Svecevicius is a much better distionary.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not recommened unless you speak Lithuanian 14 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is alright, but the Lithuanian pronounciations are NOT in the English section. For example: Sun (suhn) saule n You'd have to do a reverse search for the word.

1.0 out of 5 stars unsatisfactory 15 Dec 2004
By Justin Krawitz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Blatant errors are to be found even in the 'Guide to Pronunciation' at the begininning of this volume. No extended explanations or examples of different usages. Very basic.

1.0 out of 5 stars Translations not consistent 7 Jan 2004
By K. Kauffman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I used this dictionary to try to have a conversation with native Lithuanians. It was very difficult. The translations are not consistent and sometimes just wrong. Looking up the word for "sick" in english actually gave me the word for "tired". However, the LT to EN translation for "tired" gave me the english word for "tired". It is helpful, but not something I would exclusively use for travel.
