A great value resource, September 27, 2004
Reviewer: sjmaxqnz "kia ora" (Hastings, HB New Zealand)

This dictionary is really worthwhile! Being only Hindi-English actually helped me, by forcing me to accelerate my learning of devanagari. Of course, after the devanagari spelling is the roman transliteration as well. Because it's only Hindi-English, you get a bigger number of entries in a still-manageable size. For the budget-conscious Hindi student, this is a must have.

Good Hindi-English Dictionary, August 9, 2003
Reviewer: A reader
This dictionary is worthy of much veneration. Besides the multitudinous number of words provided, the print is very clear and legible. Etymology of words is also given, which is a nice feature because one can see whence a particular word originated, and that alone is reason enough to buy this dictionary.

And despite what one reviewer claimed about there being no Roman transliteration provided, that is not true. Words are listed first in the Devanagari, followed by a transliteration.

It would've been nice if there was also an English-Hindi section included, but, aside from that trifling shortfall, the dictionary as it is is deserving of 5 stars.

The Oxford Hindi-English Dictionary, June 3, 2003

Reviewer: Arun (Lincolnshire, England)

This is a clear and well presented dictionary but provides no transliterated roman version of the hindi words. You need to be able to read sanskrit to understand it.

the king of Hindi dictionaries, February 2, 2000
Reviewer: A reader
It includes a wide variety of words, whether standard language or dialects. Etymology of words is also interesting. It is easy to manipulate, not too thick and easily transportable. Headword presentation and examples are clear.

This is the best Hindi-English dictionary imaginable, July 17, 1999
Reviewer: A reader
My only regret is that there is no English-Hindi counterpart. This book includes all common usages of words in conjunction with verbs, as well as variations and related words. Also very helpful is the origin of each word, and its spelling in its language of origin. If you are student of Hindi, I could not recommend a better book. Mr. McGregor is my hero.
