We will use this as a class and teacher reference book. We need to be mindful of the over use of mutations and cross reference it but I really like the fact that the Manx section has explanations in Manx. Very useful as a school resource.

This dictionary is currently wowing our Manx Conversational group both in terms of completeness and its cultural significance. It is certainly handy and is two-way, which is not often found in Manx Dictionaries.

One thing to be cautious about is that the book was essentially created by a young boy through spoken word. An incredible achievement, but one should beware of spelling errors. For example, the days start Jy instead of Je. Therefore Jecrean is incorrectly spelt Jycrean. But for quick look up, conversational and learning, it is outstanding.
