    The book has a very basic and simple layout, which makes browsing easy and enjoyable The pronunciation guide was clear and helpful The text is a sensible size.I bought this simply because I enjoy discovering word origins, but realising that we still use many of the same words today has made me feel connected to this part of our history I am woefully ignorant of this period and this has encouraged me to find out .

    Easy to use because you have modern day words first, then translated into Old English words instead of Old English first A lot easier to use to because you know the modern words most.

    Already had a guide but OE to NE This makes sentence construction so much easier Also have the CDs and Introduction and would recommend all three.

    This is an incredibly useful tool for those of us learning Old English.We produce handwritten Manuscripts on Vellum in the traditional manner,so this dictionary is so useful in helping us understand old manuscripts.

    Just learning Old English and have found this book useful and clear to use particularly the pages dealing with pronunciation.Need now a book giving Old English to Modern above book gives Modern to Old English which is not so useful when transl ating0Very good value for money too.

    Stephen Pollington is one of the world s best known experts on Anglo Saxon history, language and culture He has written many books on the topic, and pretty much anyone who s into that topic knows that he is The Man This book is extremely helpful, providing what is probably the most comprehensive all around lexicon from Old English to New English This book is a must own for the self taught student of Anglo Saxon England and the Old English language.
