Rating: 4 out of 5 stars - Very helpful
Don't have anything to compare this to since this
is the first one of this kind for me to use. I
did find it very helpful in Managua while trying
to ask questions and explain myself.


Rating: 5 out of 5 stars - Great compact dictionary
For the size (and it is very compact), this is a great little dictionary. It's perfect for traveling, and I found that it worked well in Latin America (includes Lat. Am word uses as well). Highly recommended.


Rating: 5 out of 5 stars - Excellent choice!
Great reference! I purchased this dictionary to use while brushing up on my Spanish thru a conversational Spanish class. Every time I have needed to reference a word, this book has allowed me to get the appropriate word quickly!


Rating: 5 out of 5 stars - Very helpful
I found this Dictionary very helpful as a quick reference while traveling within The Dominican Republic. It was easy to move through and would recommend it as a reference guide for anyone learning Spanish.


Rating: 5 out of 5 stars - Very good for my purposes
I am astounded at the review that is listed below me. Talk about nit-picking!
This is the only pocket dictionary that is sturdy enough to carry around in your pocket without falling apart in days. The Oxford dictionary is held together with cheap glue. This is just fine for my purposes. If I need to look up an obscure word I just wait until I get home to my bigger dictionary.

Rating: 1 out of 5 stars - Disappointment
I am usually Merriam-Webster's biggest fan of its products. Although I have several up-to-date unabridged Spanish dictionaries, I bought this one to see if it portrays the revised Spanish alphabet correctly and if it treated special topics coherently. I was disappointed on both counts. Although the Spanish Academy along with its sister Academies in 1994 decided to ignore the letters CH and LL for alphabetization purposes (including them in the letters C and L, respectively,) the letters CH and LL still remain part of the 29-letter complement of the post-1994 Spanish alphabet. If you look under Z in in Spanish side of the dictionary, it notes that Z is the twenty-seventh letter of the alphabet. This mistake is inexcusable, especially in light of Merriam-Webster's normally stellar quality in its reference materials. My advice is to not buy this paperback Spanish dictionary, but to instead invest your money in the pocket Oxford Spanish dictionary if you want a very good, small, paperback up-to-date Spanish dictionary. I hope Merriam-Webster gets it right in their next edition.
