Lexique Francais-Hebreu & Hebreu-Francais
User-friendly Hebrew-French / French-Hebrew Dictionary
by Marc Cohn
What makes this dictionary more user-friendly than its predecessors?
- There are no sub-entries. All entries are equal of equal status and listed vertically in the same size print. When you look up a single word or a compound, your eye glances down the printed column without having to squint sideways at elusive sub-entries. Words derived from the same root, or different parts of speech constructed from the same stem are listed as independent entries.
- The dictionary incorporates 100,000 entries, but in effect many more are included, as each entry appears only once even if it functions as different parts of speech. The vocabulary has been carefully selected, and caters for everyday reading and speaking needs. Archaic and very rare words have been omitted.
- Compounds have been included when the meaning is different from the sum of their components, or when the translation into the second language is by means of a single word.
