`a boon for any student of the Welsh language' Writers News, July 2000

`it is a pleasure to use as both a practical word-search tool for English L1 learners using the vocabulary of everyday life, and also as a browse handbook to support the ongoing process of Welsh learning The book is of a convenient size for (large) pocket use, and its clear print and adequate space in the margins will encourage its regular use as a companion to any Welsh-language course. Highly recommended for students and contaning many practical lessons for future compilers of Welsh and English dictionaries.' Cathair O Dochartaigh, Language, Culture and Curriculum, Vol 13:3, 2000

This dictionary is intended for the growing number of learners of modern Welsh in all walks of life, and is designed with their needs in mind.

It represents a departure from traditional dictionaries which, particularly for Welsh, have confined themselves to more or less word-for-word entries without explanation. A notable feature of the present dictionary is the provision in the Welsh-English side of numerous illustrative examples taken from actual native speech and writing.

Another innovation concerns the consonant mutations ?all instances of mutation (except fossilized/fixed mutation) are explicitly indicated by special typographical signs throughout the dictionary on both sides. This is to make the system of mutations and their patterns of occurrence transparent and therefore no longer a matter of guesswork for the inexperienced student.

Some particularly important or difficult aspects of Welsh grammar and usage are discussed at greater length in separate half-page or full-page boxes. In addition, a summary of the grammatical structures and mechanisms of Welsh is given in the Grammar Reference section.

* Comprehensive coverage of contemporary Welsh
