This is less a simple dictionary and more an inclusive book of Tagalog that also happens to be a first class dictionary. What I mean by that is this: as well as the dictionary (more heavily-weighted towards Tagalog-English than English-Tagalog, but that's great for my purposes), this work also contains a nicely detailed section on Tagalog grammar. It has a coda that includes songs and poems in Tagalog, and a section on Tagalog morphology, which is, of course, famously complex. On top of that, there is even a brief outline of Baybayin, the pre-Hispanic Tagalog writing system. What more could you ask for?

There are very few flaws, if any, although occasionally looking up the odd Tagalog word has been problematic, due to the obvious morphological issues. My purpose in buying this text, and in learning Tagalog, is this: I speak quite reasonable Indonesian/Malay, and I find it a wonderfully simple and interesting language. It is quite closely related to Tagalog, and to the Philippine languages. Although it displays a much reduced grammatical complexity as compared to Tagalog, Indonesian also has a relatively large number of verbal affixes, some of which are potentially unnecessary. My question when learning Indonesian was, where did these affixes come from, and why are they there, when the vast majority of the meaning is in the root of the verb? To find the answer, I decided to look a more morphologically complex language where the affixes add a large degree of meaning - in terms of mood, number and so on. So far, it's been an interesting academic voyage through the Austronesian languages, and using this dictionary, with primary texts, has brought me a very large step closer to my aim.

Very comprehensive. In addition to the actual dictionary part, the book contains lots of useful information about the Tagalog language itself, like grammar and information about the numerous affixes and how to use them. A minor drawback is that the words in the dictionary seem to be a bit outdated and words starting with certain letters, like F, V and J are not included (even if they are not part of the official Tagalog alphabet people use them and the corresponding phonemes anyway as the language has so many loan words, think of "film" for example). All in all, I've seen many Tagalog-English (or English-Tagalog) dictionaries and this is by far the best and the most comprehensive one.

the book seems to be informative. I just received it today and did an instant peek already :D and actually it was a foreign friend who will use it.But as described,it could be so much helpful depending on use. It wont be ordered for critiscm,right? So far,this dictionary satisfy me and i am recommending it to those who's wanting a much elaborated dictio.Some words are slightly old fashioned but that helps too especially if it is to be use by a native Filipino. The phrases and stresses are well done too.Very good book!
