    GOOD DICTIONARY???

    I am in desperate need of a new slovar to replace the ol' "pocket" dictionar. Can someone recommend a good Russian-English English-Russian dictionary? I am looking for one with lengthy definitions.

    Also, anyone get a good Russian-Russian dictionary? It might be nice to read the Russian definitions in Russian. Anyone tried this? How'd it work?

    Carper, you're American, correct? If so, the Kenneth Katzner dictionary would probably be a better choice - it's based on US English. Also, the Oxford one has a few lies in it, based on my experience.

    I do have a regular Russian dictionary. It's useful for getting at the nuances of word meaning.

    Incidentally, I just found out that Kenneth Katzner is dead. I am in mourning.

    Everyone, a moment of silence for Kenneth.

    The bear looked at the car, and reflections of fire danced in his eyes. He knew what to do.
