5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent dictionary, recommed it to everyone!, 10 July 2002
This review is from: Bosnian-English, English-Bosnian Dictionary (Hippocrene Concise Dictionaries) (Paperback)
I found this dictonary very useful, it contains almost everything.
Just to correct my friend here that wrote his review about Bosnian language, that Bosnian language has been in existence for centuries. However, during the communist and anti Bosnian (muslim) regieme, Bosnian language was not allowed to be used, in the same way as a Bosnian person wasn't allowed to call him self a muslim. Hence, Bosnian language was unknown to people outside of Bosnia. Fortunatelly, that is not the case any longer.
Bosnian language contains most unique words derived from Turkish language, which cannot be found in Serbo-Croat language that is spoken in Yugoslavia and Croatia.
As far as this dictionary goes, it is well put together and I would recommend it to anyone that is interested in learning Bosnian language or travelling to Bosnia.

This review is from: Bosnian-English, English-Bosnian Dictionary (Hippocrene Concise Dictionaries) (Paperback)
This book has an english word followed by a transliteration in Bosnian then from one to four words that SHOULD be translations. BUT...you find the words are derivatives of the word but take on a different meaning the word. For instance, "sit" will cover "sit on the table", "I will sit here", and then "Sit down". (This is an example as I was talking to a Bosnian interpretor and she quickly corrected me on just one of the variations i.e. sjesti=Sit down. But there is NO way of telling what the context of the word is. There are alot of commone words missing that you would expect any other kind of dictionary to contain.
