Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great value for the money !  Jul 4, 2008
I can find the characters I want with ease. You can find by # of strokes or Romanization or 'radical index (Bouh sau)'. Very nice work. So far, I never had any problems.
Execllent chinese-english dictionary!  May 1, 2006
This is an excellent resource for native cantonese speakers. I agree with another reviewer that in chinese you use a combination of words that create a whole word. If that is what the other reviewer is looking for then I'd recommend the "Glossary of Common Colloquial Cantonese Expressions," by Simon So; "Dictionary of Cantonese Slang," by Christopher Hutton and Kingsley Bolton.

This dictionary is very helpful because it has 6000 listings of characters and within the definitions it gives examples of how words are used. I find it useful and I am very happy with this dictionary. If as other reviewers are looking for a dictionary with simplified characters, look elsewhere. This is a traditional character dictionary geared toward traditional chinese. Within each definition it includes the mandarin pingyin pronounciation for those who are reading the characters using the traditonal format in mandarin.
Contains errors  Apr 18, 2005
I found a couple of errors in a couple of the definitions and pronounciations in this dictionary.
Excellent character dictionary  Mar 31, 2003
This dictionary is excellent for finding individual characters and their meanings. However, it is not a ready source for finding whole words (most chinese words consist of 2 or more characters). In other words, a person could find the characters ¤õ and ¨® and they're respective meanings, fire and car, quite easily, but ¤õ¨® (train)- is not listed.

The dictionary's strong points are that it uses Yale romanization for Cantonese and standard pinyin for Mandarin; that characters can be looked up in three ways: radical, number of strokes, and Cantonese romanization; and the detail of its listings.

If it had a Mandarin pinyin index and simplified characther look up as well it would be a much more useful tool. As it is, it is indespesible for a Cantonese speaker learning Mandarin and one of the easiest dictionaries to use to look up a character. I recommend it highly for intermediate to advanced Cantonese speakers, and I would even suggest it to students of Mandarin (although not as strongly).

much needed dictionary  Jul 15, 2002
This is a much needed dictionary for people wanting to learn Cantonese. It is very useful, well printed, and nicely done. However I have 2 minor issues: (1) it lacks a Mandarin index so if I know how the character sounds in Mandarin, I have to resort to tedious radical and/or stroke lookup to find the Cantonese pronounciation; and (2) the Cantonese romanization used doesn't explicitly distinguish between a short 'i' and a long 'i'.
