American Reference Books Annual (Review of the Second Edition)

This major new dictionary is the most modern and inclusive Indonesian-English dictionary available. The product of more than twenty years of research and documentation of the Indonesian language and culture, A Comprehensive Indonesian-English Dictionary is designed to be as user-friendly as possible. Root words, meanings, proverbs, and idioms, compounds that begin with the root word, and derivatives are given.

“One can only guess at the effort which has gone into this magnum opus…this massive new contribution to Indonesian lexicography.... There is not space to discuss all the many features of this dictionary.... The book, besides being massive, is beautifully produced and reflects credit on the Ohio University Press and the American Indonesian Chamber of Commerce as well as the compilers.”
