ISBN-13: 978-0198610724. This Pocket Oxford Spanish Dictionary is a brick! I was looking for a good dictionary to take with me on a trip to Nicaragua this summer. I wanted a small dictionary I could keep in a pocket or a fanny pack. This dictionary would pull my pants off or make my fanny pack uncomfortable to wear. It would be a great dictionary to use for a Spanish class, but it is definitely not a light travel dictionary. The cover is paper too. It would get destroyed on a trip.

Book arrived as described, on time. Thanks

Honestly my only gripe is that there is no way I could fit this in my pocket. I ordered 2 pocket dictionaries for an upcoming trip to Mexico and expected to use them as such. This is not even close to pocket size. In fact, I don't think I could fit it in my purse which isn't small. A more appropriate description of this dictionary would be "junior size." Don't buy it thinking it'll fit in your pocket!

I did a lot of comparison shopping among Spanish-English dictionaries of similar size (or slightly smaller) and like this one best.

I wanted to mention an interesting detail: For some inexplicable reason, the Oxford Spanish Desk Dictionary and the Pocket Oxford Spanish Dictionary appear to be the same book, and are the same size. The only difference is that the "desk" dictionary is the hardcover version (the listed dimensions are very slightly larger because the hard cover extends beyond the page edges just a bit). The "pocket" dictionary is just the softcover version of same.

Now, why the "desk" version and the "pocket" version are the same size, I'll never know -- and, in fact, this "pocket" dictionary is much larger than a pocket-sized paperback -- not a big deal as long as you know what you are getting.

Nonetheless, a great dictionary, and I highly recommend it. I just thought this was an interesting bit of information.

This is an excellent Spanish-English dictionary for students - and travellers with some understanding of the language. It has almost every word that I could think of using plus useful tid-bits such as descriptions of Spanish-speaking countries, their holidays, weights and measures conversion tables, and examples of how to write various kinds of letters. And, if you're not too hot on grammar, there's a glossary defining grammatical terms for you, such as what a verb and adjective are. The most helpful tool included in this book is a complete chart of verb conjugations that can be applied easily.

Physically, this dictionary is very well constructed. In the many years I've had it the most it's suffered are bent corners and worn edges. It's not going to fall apart on you like many editions that cost more. This is a great resource at any price, and it sells for a bargain.

I used this book for 6 years in Spanish classes and it's all I ever needed!

This is a wonderfully put together dictionary that has served me perfectly. The grammar explanation is concise and the entries give examples which are invaluable in comprehension and conversation. I also like that the letters are printed boldly on the side of the page, so when your thumbing through and searching for a word it becomes very easy to locate.

This is an incredible resource for anyone working between the Spanish and English languages (very thorough even compared to the Webster's New World Spanish Dictionary); however, it is NOT a pocket dictionary as titled. The dimensions did not sound that big to me when I read them online because I overlooked the 2 inch thickness and weight. Unless you're wearing Jencos, forget it!

Whether you are going Spanish to English or the other way around, it is easy to find words. So far, it has included all the words I looked up.
My Master's thesis was a review and rating of Spanish-English dictionaries. I find this dictionary, like all the other Oxford dictionaries, to be a good choice.

Here are a few of the factors which distinguish a good bilingual dictionary from a bad one.

To begin with, ignore certain publishers' marketing ploys such as entry and translation counts. They say nothing about the value of the words chosen.

The first valid factor to consider is lexicographic technique. A bad dictionary simply lists translations. Take, for example, the entry in the Cassell's Spanish Dictionary under the English headword loop: "lazo, gaza, nudo; ojal, presilla, alamar; anillo; recodo, comba, curva, vuelta," etc. For the English reader writing in Spanish, this is hopelessly inadequate, as the dictionary provides no clue as to which translation to use in which situation.

Compare the treatment of the same word in the far superior American Heritage Spanish Dictionary. "(length of line) lazo; (coil) vuelta; (bend) curva; (circular path) vuelta, circuito; (fastener) presilla" etc. Here, the user is given glosses in the native language to assist in identifying the right word for the context. Example sentences are also a tremendous help. Oxford is excellent in this respect, presenting good information to guide users through the semantic and syntactic complexities.

Second, a good dictionary should maintain an up-to-date lexicon, including such cultural and technological additions to the language as "baby sitter," "hostile takeover," "software," "flash drive." Oxford is a leader in this respect; its frequent revisions are more than mere window dressing and do a creditable job of covering the most recent additions to the language.

Third, idioms, slang, and cusswords can present real problems to the language learner, and a dictionary needs to handle them in a clear and frank fashion. This dictionary gets it right, giving stylistic equivalents for translations as well as clear advice to the user.

Be careful when you choose a bilingual dictionary, as some of the choices--Cassell's and Vox, for example--are downright terrible. The field of large dictionaries stays relatively static over time, and the best choices in it by far are Oxford, Collins, and Larousse. The field of small dictionaries, on the other hand, has many more players. While not the only good choice, Oxford is a dictionary you would certainly be pleased with.
