5.0 out of 5 stars NTC's Compact Dutch and English Dictionary
It is what it says it is, a compact dictionary which is easy to carry around and use. Very happy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not so compact
Reasonably good as a shelf dictionary, but I foolishly thought a "compact" dictionary would fit in a pocket or handbag and so be useful on a visit to the Netherlands. The dictionary itself is basic, and omits quite a lot of words which, at this size, might be expected to be included.

2.0 out of 5 stars no pronunciations are given, 9 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: NTC's Compact Dutch and English Dictionary (Paperback)
In my opinion, the utility of this dictionary is greatly limited by the fact that
it does not contain any specifications for pronunciation -- for either language.
The IPA is available for this purpose and the book chooses not to use it
-- or any pronunciation scheme. If you want pronunciation -- and IPA at that, get the
New Routledge Dutch Dictionary Dutch <-> English.

This is not a small dictionary in physical size -- as the word compact in its title
would suggest. "Limited" would be a better word. The New Routledge Dictionary
has more Dutch entries (25000 > 15000), uses the IPA, and is physically smaller!

good sized dictionary. Arrived in good condition within time stated. Nice clear print. It is better than the 2 books I had previously that this is replacing.
