Product Description

From the Back Cover

The Oxford English-Hebrew Dictionary is a detailed guide to current usage in English and Hebrew. In addition to a full range of idioms and phrases, slang and colloquialisms, the dictionary offers comprehensive coverage of technical, scientific, legal, medical, and academic terminology. Care has also been taken to record British, American, and Australian variants. Both the presentation and content of the dictionary are designed to guide the reader through the pitfalls of varying register and context; clearly labelled senses and numerous example phrases ensure maximum clarity and accessibility. The result is an essential reference tool for English and Hebrew users alike. The Oxford English-Hebrew Dictionary was compiled and edited at the Oxford Centre for Hebrew and Jewish Studies.

Format: Paperback
This is the only English Hebrew dictionary which enumerates the various meanings of each English word, including usage in set phrases and unusual meanings, and translates each separately and clearly. Its full of usage examples, so that with words, which it is not intuitive how to use in Hebrew, it gives you a template example, so you can go away and starting using the example given. There is a lot of idiomatic Hebrew in the book too. When is the Hebrew English version coming out?

YES! This is the "cheap" dictionary that will solve your everyday problem with Hebrew! Think about all your daily activities and write down the words in a notebook and then look them up in this wonderful, inexpensive dictionary and build your way up to fluent hebrew. You'll get there in no-time.. :-)

The English/Hebrew dictionary was good. HOWEVER, we were expecting there to also be a Hebrew to English section as well, but there was not. A disappointment.

Excellent. The inclusion of examples of how words are actually used, and idiomatic phrases, makes the dictionary extremely useful.

2.0 out of 5 stars I would not recommend this book for an English speaking person 21 Aug. 2014
By Walter Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It is difficult to use because of small Hebrew print and it does not provide a phonetic translation. If you know the Hebrew word, you cannot look up the English translation. I would not recommend this book for an English speaking person. It may be OK for a Hebrew speaker who wants to look up an English word.
3.0 out of 5 stars The dictionary is big and is worth the price but ... 30 Sept. 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The dictionary is big and is worth the price but is more for English learners than hebrew learners. I would appreciate if they could do both sides one for English and one for Hebrew as wells. And they need too add pronunciation to the Hebrew side!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Oxford English-Hebrew Dictionary very helpful to my studies... 21 Mar. 2013
By David Squires - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was hoping for another English-Hebrew, Hebrew-English resource and this purchase was only English-Hebrew. Nevertheless I find the volume to be an excellent reference book and I use it often in my studies.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hebrew words first. 14 Mar. 2014

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was hoping to find a list of Hebrew words so that I could look up the English. If I do not know the English translation I had a hard time finding it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive Coverage 10 Nov. 2001
By D. Cassell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Oxford English-Hebrew Dictionary contains "Comprehensive coverage from slang and colloquialisms to technical and scientific terminology." This mammoth of a book contains over 1000 pages. However I was slightly disappointed by this English-Hebrew dictionary. Besides the fact that it is only English-Hebrew & not Hebrew-English this can be a hard to follow enigma. The words are so numerous the reader can spend hours searching for the correct word. Most every word has sub phrases e.g. at random I chose the word collaborate & below it I found "work together" & "work for the enemy." I also noticed as I was flipping through this book that it contains many curse words. Not only does this book contain a plethora of words but it contains associated phrases. Besides containing words that I never thought I'd hear & probably lay in the deep ravine of my mind this book doesn't contain much of anything. There is a short 3-page pronunciation guide & a 4-pages introduction. Overall if you're looking for an English-Hebrew dictionary that will contain almost any word you can think of then this is the dictionary for you. I believe this dictionary is for the advanced scholar & not for the average student. However in its field there is no better English-Hebrew dictionary, just beware that is for the advanced scholars.
