The Oxford New Russian Dictionary

<p>
I love this dictionary series, and this dictionary. It is a great size, a great weight, and a great design. I am very particular about the way my dictionaries feel, and the way they open, and the font, and <em>The Oxford New Russian Dictionary</em> passed all my personal dictionary tests.</p>
<p>
When I was studying Russian, I confess I did find myself cheating with the dictionary. Please allow me to explain.</p>
<p>
Since it was hard for me to remember the alphabetical order of Russian letters, and since it was therefore time-consuming for me to find words in the Russian half of the dictionary, I often tried to make an educated guess about what the English translations would be, and then I would look the words up backwards, in the English section instead.&nbsp;Even when I guessed wrong, it was still often faster than figuring out where a given Russian word would be.</p>
<p>
But I spent only two months on Russian. I feel I would eventually have gotten past that.</p>
<p>
I look forward to trying out <em>The Oxford New Russian Dictionary</em> again in the future!</p>
