    Comments about The Pocket Oxford Greek Dictionary:

    I use this dictionary on a daily base. It is relatively handy and helpful but a bit outdated. Quite few common words are missing and some are not presented in the same grammatical form they are currently used in Greece(masculine versus neutral or feminine etc)
    OK for beginners on a weekly base that would want to start learning Greek but may not want to invest in a dictionary that they may not use in a year or so.
    I did have to buy another one...
