5.0 out of 5 stars Great Reference! 11 Jun. 2013

The book came early and was in excellent condition! The content is very rich and very organized. It seems like a solid reference book that will not fall apart very soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid stuff 26 July 2008
By Ross Wood - Published on Amazon.com
Mind you, this dictionary is suitable for Chinese knowledgeable people. It doesn't have Pinyin.

Everything about this dictionary is sterling: from the breadth, which is just immense, with so many definitions, that would suffice to a pro even, to the nice, big print, with thick enough paper for comfort, and thin enough to cram more than 2800 pages into one tome. The binding itself is sturdy and will last long.

Weighs at about 6 pounds, it contains phrases (including Latin, French, German et aliae), examples, explanations, names and even some pictures. It includes even new millennium definitions.

The last 76 pages of the dictionary has an exhaustive list of irregulars (including archaic forms), a list of Western names and their variations, conversion tables, the 50 states and information them, like state flower etc, and more. All the English headwords are provided with IPA pronunciation.

Some definitions from the dictionary: samsara, plough the sand(S), sand martin, fait accompli, mutatis mutandis, INTELSAT, odalisque (picture as well), obstreperous and many other goodies.

I had the opposite volume (New Age Chinese English Dictionary) (q.v) which is also top notch. I resolved to buy this green covered English Chinese volume on my last trip to China and was able to finally find a decent copy in one of the big bookstores, but they are becoming harder and harder to find because they have stopped printing them for some reason. I can't understand why because it really is the BEST dictionary on the market. I browsed every huge English Chinese dictionary they had, and this was still the best. It had the most terms, the most up to date vocabulary as well as the widest number of cultural phrases; everything from Watergate to gigabyte.

My only peeve is that the introduction is in Chinese only, and the list of the chinese abbreviations for 'part of speech' notations (ie--'v','adj','m. word' / Biological term, Italian, Pharmacological, etc) isn't translated into English.(NOTE: MAY, 2009--I've translated the Parts of Speech notations myself, and will be glad to email anyone a PDF copy to tip into the dictionary. Email me at phledd at truvista plus dotnet) I still really recommend this dictionary!
