No one who has ever wants to read, write, speak, listen or even take an interest in the languages of the British Isles can possibly live without this book. The introduction is so engaging it is worth the price on its own. The authors' attitude towards modern linguistic trends is clearly stated, and there is also a brief morphology. Not too heavy, not to light. Scholarly, but not dry.
Learners may find it useful, native speakers will certainly not be able to live without it.-almost.
Although it is an English - Welsh dictionary,and the Welsh are,as ever 'non grata',it is still well worth a browse,which will surely lead to a purchase.
The Welsh form of English words is fascinating,so many ways of expressing one English word.The vulgar words too are worth a look. There is no Welsh-English section,a reflection perhaps on the state of the language in Britain. With the death of our British languages so imminent this book is a sign of not going gently.Congratulations to Mr Jones and Mr Griffiths, the authors.

This dictionary is certainly worth every penny. It is clear and very comprehensive. It gives many examples of usage and a lot of information, which is particularly useful for learners of Welsh.
One can only hope that a Welsh-English version will be available soon as this dictionary is so much better than anything I have come across while learning Welsh.

Absolutely enthralled with this English-Welsh dictionary.

Perhaps its being largely based on the French Shorter Harraps (that I remember so well from A Level French) has made me feel so immediately at home with it.

Would highly recommend it.

This book is fantastic. It is an English to Welsh dictionary helping you communicate well in Welsh. It contains so many words and gives the Welsh word or words for every different meaning of the word in English with Welsh contextual examples. This is not a cheap book but it is worth every penny.

This is invaluable. It is superb. It deserves 10 stars. Astonishingly comprehensive. But one thing (no comment on the dictionary itself, please note), will the publisher consider a paperback edition, or perhaps a smaller-sized version? I'm a writer. I travel a lot. I like my Bruce Griffiths with me. But lugging it about is heavy work. Any chance of a "compact Bruce" - or a to use the Welsh a "Bruce Bach" (small Bruce)?
