Contains a good range of everyday words. A handy [but brief] pronunciation guide is given as part of the intro of the book. My only criticism would be that with some words were difficult to work out, like how to punctuate/pronounce certain words/syllables... namely where some words lacked indicators of tone/pitch.
The book uses the Yale system, which is easy to follow. Overall a good book, but in addition to other learning material.
I agree with a previous review that there are a fair few words lacking within this dictionary that would be helpful to know, and some of the words present are not quite what all native speakers would use now. Aside from that however, I would definitely recommend this dictionary to all learners of Cantonese, provided it is used along side other learning material (if only it were an audio-dictionary! That would be perfect :-D).
I made up my mind to stick to one Language, so, i decided to start with Cantonese. Some might say its one of the hardest languages to learn for an English speaker, i think not! I can hold a conversation, but i need to learn more. Anyway back to the Cantonese dictionary, its a well structured book, you get English-Cantonese & Cantonese to English, and thecontent is more accurate than other books that i have come across it and its on sale, what a bargain.
Anyway whoever beginner or intermediate whats a straight forward dictionary, try this one. It sure didn't dissapoint me and who knows it could help an abundance of learners out there.
