Where are the genders? And what about phonetics?,
By A Customer
This review is from: Norwegian Dictionary: Norwegian-English, English-Norwegian (Routledge Bilingual Dictionaries) (Paperback)
I ordered the dictionary blind, thinking that the biggest dictionary possible was bound to include these things. But there just seem to be so many words missing! If you wanted to know the norwegian for Norway you won't find it here! For the price I was very disappointed, although there are various obscure nuggets to be gleaned (I could tell you what an "irrigation cooler" is in norwegian).
My mini Berlitz dictionary, which cost next-to-nothing, has phonetics included with every entry and it's invaluable. If only this book could have addressed this and the matter of genders. Ah well.....
