For The Most Part Very Handy,
This review is from: The Pocket Oxford Greek Dictionary: Greek-English, English-Greek (Paperback)
This is my first dictionary in my attempts to read books and articles written in Modern Greek and for the most part it serves my purposes well. The words in Greek are easily accessed, for the most part available (i.e. most words I need to look up are present), and have definitions that fit well into whatever narrative I am reading. The book is fairly lightweight and portable but is a a little too large for a pocket (or at least my pockets). The words are in easily read bold print and the definitions are in a much fainter print that does not hold up too well for me in fainter light. The book stands up well to repeated use (no pages falling out so far). There is a section on pronunciation and the principal parts of some verbs but no extensive grammar section. Overall I am very happy with this book as a convenient reference.
