This review is from: English-Swahili Dictionary (Paperback)
I consider this English-Swahili dictionary a great work of linguistics, because of the loads of detail it contains. There are about 60,000 entries, the English words have their phonetics transcriptions, and for each entry you get lots of useful phrases that show you HOW the language really works in each CONTEXT, "a characteristic feature of this dictionary is the extensive use of labels, even where the choice is difficult and where considerations of convenience might indicate that they be omitted." The author didn't forget a "thorough coverage of life in tropical waters, and the inclusion of all animals, birds and trees indigenous to Africa." The use of phrases really works, and help you to better understand and memorize the Swahili language.
