An impressive volume of 1200 pages with a very precise technical analysis of this formidable language. Nothing on the rather daunting script, however.

Clear Greek letters used, and helpful translations provided. Some of the references quoted are a little mystifying to the non-specialist.

The one slight negative factor here is that it has a slight female bias. But then this is acceptable given that a woman has written it. And very well written it is too. I particularly liked the questions and answers given at the end of each chapter. She puts forward a very good case for a relationship system which is considered unconventional by many but which may have been the norm in pre-agriculturalization hunter-gatherer societies: and it makes a good case for a sharing culture in which people try to love rather than outdo each other.

3.0 out of 5 stars this little book nevertheless provided me with a number of useful words relevant to my own research, 1 Mar. 2015

Not so thorough as the dictionary by Sutherland, this little book nevertheless provided me with a number of useful words relevant to my own research.

This review is from: The Caithness dictionary
This dictionary is beautifully bound and presented. It has a good selection of words, with straightforward definitions although there is no etymology given. An excellent companion to my collection of dictionaries of the Northern Isles dialects.


How To Paint Fireworks
How To Paint Fireworks
by Laura Jayne Friedlander
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Subtle and sensuous., 1 Mar. 2015
This review is from: How To Paint Fireworks (Paperback)
This lady certainly knows how to paint fireworks, all right! She uses words and phrases with a subtlety which had me reading the same poem 3 or 4 times in order to squeeze out its secrets. At times playful and erotic, she fascinates the reader. I can read 20 languages: but oh how I wish I could write English like her!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good music, skimpy synopsis., 1 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lovely music, well played. I have marked the product down because the words did not come with the disc: there was just a flimsy piece of paper with details of the performers. I like to know what the singers are singing: and I was hoping to translate some of the verses for a book of erotic poems I'm writing. But the music is lovely.
