4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Droigheann on 29 Oct. 2009
Format: Paperback
Probably the best dictionary of contemporary Gaelic for intermediate and advanced learners, including online ones. In addition to translations contains a lot of example phrases and sentences, usage notes, and twelve detailed appendices on individual parts of speech, numerals, time expressions, points of compass and proper names. Somewhat lacking in areas (e.g. IT) where presumably the author didn't consider some expressions as already well-established; spelling of placenames occasionally differs from other dictionaries; but as a whole a perfect dictionary for a learner who is no longer fully satisfied with the scope of The Essential Gaelic-English Dictionary (in particular, but not only, with regard to compound nouns).

Colin B.D. Mark has done a wonderful job - this is a great up-to-date dictionary. Lots of extras - I particularly liked the pronunciation guide at the start. Most of all, there are lots of examples of usage which capture some of the nuances of expression which learners can miss out on. Tha sinn fada nur comain, a' Chailean.

Format: Paperback
This is a most comprehensive and informative dictionary. It certainly forces you to face the challenge of Gaelic.
Like many, I guess, I am on outsider looking in. I have spent many holidays in the Isle of Lewis, where our friends
converse with each other in Gaelic. So I do know the sounds of Gaelic and its setting. But when it comes to tackling
the language oneself, it is a daunting task.
I have come to become acquainted with the McAlpine dictionaries. These are quite good in their own rather quirky ways,
and they have the advantage of containing an English-Gaelic section also.
However, they do not have the depth of learning and word usage which this book has.If you look up one simple word here, you are led into its many meanings , and how it is used in countless phrases and examples.
If I were inclined to be lazy, I would wish for an English-Gaelic section; but I rather believe this would miss the whole
point.

Pricey, but well worth it. Print-on-demand means delivery time is a bit on the slow side, but it's good quality, easy to read and use.

Format: Paperback
I am very happy with this dictionary, as are my friends who have bought it. Entries are quite up-to-date and complete, and there are several very helpful appendices in the back with key organized information. I only gave 4 stars because I still need to look elsewhere in older dictionaries for pronunciation.
