The Popular Dictionary of the Estonian language is an easy dictionary suitable also for users who lack in-depth and systematic knowledge of the Estonian language. The selection of words corresponds to the basic needs of a modern user, containing the essential Estonian words with their basic meanings. The carefully chosen sample sentences and phrases help to quickly understand and memorise the exact meaning and scope of use of each word. Illustrations have also been used to better explain the meanings.
Each vocabulary entry has a clear and simple structure regarding both form and explanations. The entry begins with the basic grammatical forms and explanation of that particular word which serve as an instruction for oral or written use. The composition of the entry enables the user to find the most important information from the dictionary, leaving no need to consult additional materials.
The language commentaries at the end of the vocabulary entry provide inter-word relations or indicate the frequent potential mistakes in the word’s spelling, alternate forms and in differentiating its meanings. The language commentaries have a two-fold role – to assist the user of the dictionary and to teach to understand and to use the language correctly. The commentaries serve to indicate links in meaning and form, complicated usage or spelling, but they also contain various instructions for avoiding frequent mistakes. All these properties make the Popular Dictionary a perfect tool for self-education and development.
The section of spelling rules in the annex of the dictionary is definitely an additional bonus. This section contains the basic spelling rules of the Estonian language, each illustrated with examples. The annex also contains a selection of Estonian place names and a short overview of the suffixes and affixes of Estonian word derivation, again accompanied by examples.
Popular Dictionary is a practical and easy tool for both young and old.From same series TEA rahvasõnaraamatud:
