Review quote

This new dictionary will no doubt prove invaluable to those embarking on their first steps in 'real' Greek with the absence of a course book to guide them ... anyone undertaking post-beginners' courses either at university or elsewhere will also benefit greatly from this volume ... clear layout, large print and, genuine affordability ... the editors should be praised for the clarity of vision underpinning this dictionary, which will surely make a major contribution to the study of the Greek language.
