There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The list of headings and translations is shown in one continuous line, with nothing (not even a full stop) between the end of the last entry and the beginning of the next. This makes it hard to find the word you want on the page.
There is no way to jump from one letter to the next, you have to press the 'Next Page' button on your Kindle to get to the part of the dictionary you want. It opens at 'A', so if you want to look up a word beginning with 'T' you just have to sit there and keep pressing that button till you finally get to the T's. If you press 'Menu' then 'Go To', you can only jump to the beginning or end of the book. If the letters were arranged into separate chapters that would at least be an improvement.
Even if this was free it would still be one to avoid as you'd never be able to use it. Awful book, I'm deleting it.
This seems to me to be a fair dictionary of printed Welsh from maybe the early 1900's.
So, no modernisms. And no clear distinction north/south.
Some other reviews complain about the layout - all squashed up, no headings.
It took some getting used to, but way I use it on my Kindle is -
a) I have put a few markers into the text (Cyn-, Gy-, etc). So I can quickly get to these points
b) if that fails (and there are always problems with mutations), then I can search for part of the word
eg: for cymdeithas, I might search for "ymdeithas"
This takes a few seconds, but comes up with all the entries which contain this text (highlighted).
Of course, the best is "y Geriadur Mawr", but it does not fit in my pocket.

Don't buy this for your Kindle thinking you'll be able to fox the ridiculous layout by using the search function to search for words!Read more
