3.0 out of 5 stars Does more than you would think, 3 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: An Electronic French Dictionary (Electronic Dictionaries Book 4) (Kindle Edition)
I risked 1.32 on what I thought might be a pretty indifferent, but better than nothing, Kindle French English Dictionary. I was impressed; it's range is greater than I had expected and way better than the basic Collins which I also bought. It picks up pretty obscure words and "Verlain" well. Using it as the default dictionary on my Kindle has made reading French literature much faster and more seamless.

Some negative comments though, although it is claimed that it will identify words preceded by d' and l'. It doesn't. My version only works on words where you can position the highlight bar immediately before the word itself. This is a real disadvantage, as is the fact that it will often say plural of xxxxx without giving you a meaning for xxxxx, rather frustratiing.

Three stars on the basis of being ridiculously good value.

NB have now replaced it with the Collins French English as my native Dictionary (originally this was not available) and it is hugely better

But why don't Amazon make available the native French-English dictionary that is available in France??
