I am a non-Serbo-Croatian speaker, tutoring two Bosnian refugees who have little English. I learned that they read equally well in the latin (Roman) alphabet and in the Cyrillic. I don't. I planned to use this dictionary myself, but I gave it to them, so it isn't a total loss. They tell me that most people educated in the former Yugoslavia are equally familiar with the two alphabets. The book would be more useful to English speakers if Roman text was also used for the Serbo-Croatian words.

2.0 out of 5 stars Limited in price but limited in content 3 May 2012

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very limited in content. There are no phrases or sentences containing the word sought, simply a translation so no opportunity to place the word in context . Quite disappointing

2.0 out of 5 stars Concise being the operative word 6 May 2010
Format:Paperback
Obtaining a good quality Serbian-English dictionary is a real quest for the Holy Grail. This book was the only one I could find at short notice in the UK and it is, generaly speaking, a pretty poorly produced publication. As a short-term gap-filler it may be of some, very limited use, as itv is fairly scant on detail and grammar. However, students of the language intending to visit the country should be warned that locally available dictionaries are not exactly thick on the ground and choosing a good volume will take some time.

4.0 out of 5 stars It does the job 17 April 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I am Slobodan Steve Lohja a Montonegrin born in the States (first generation). My wife is American. My Family doesn't speak english very well. They only know the basic words to get around. My wife has a hard time understanding them. Its frustrating for both sides. So I took it upon my responsibility to go out and get her a translation type book. She was excited when she received it. She ran upstairs and started playing with the words in this dictionary with my mom and aunt "tetka". They were up there a at least an hour. To bring people together and to bring communication between your wife and mom is best stress releiver. To me this dictionary would be priceless. The only thing its lacking, It doesnt teach you the alphabet, and how to pronounce the words, just definitions. Now my wife and my mom can help each other by one learning serbian and the other learning english, wish them luck!

1.0 out of 5 stars Little value 14 Jan 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Needed dictionary to help translate Serbian documents from Second World War. This volume uses Cyrillic alphabet and the scope is quite limited. Definitions are very short and there is no explantion of Serbian grammar or usage. Might be useful for someone visiting the area but was almost worthless for my needs.

By L. Settee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book does have words written in both cyrillic and latin alphabet, but the latin is NOT correct for some letters. The majority of commonly used words are not in this book. I would recommend for a beginner, but not for someone trying to translate anything of importance.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too few words 29 May 2009
By N. Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Many of the words that my Serbian friends use in daily conversation are not even in this little book. Also, I have no interest in learning Cyrillic and this book is focused on that instead of the Latin letters. I wish I had not bought this book.
