An excellent little book for the traveller in Eastern Europe,
By A Customer
This review is from: Eastern Europe (Lonely Planet Phrasebook) (Paperback)
I had doubts when I purchased this book that it would be comprehensive enough to fulfil my needs but having looked through it, was pleasantly surprised at its content. It includes several Eastern Eurpoean languages and I now know that they are all closely related. Whilst this book would not meet the needs of the serious linguist, it is excellent for the holidaymaker or occasional traveller to Eastern Europe. The pronunciation of words which are full of adjacent consonants and therefore strange to the English speaker, is explained clearly. I can recommend this book to anyone thinking of taking a holiday in Eastern Europe.
