This is not exactly a proper review, but rather is some information and notes that I have on file for the book, most of which comes from inside the book itself.



1. "The `German Word Family Dictionary' is a reference work that presents a very important and useful phenomenon of the German language: the prefix-root system."
-from the book's Introduction

2. "Each German word in this dictionary is listed in alphabetical order, but starting with the first letter of its root. This root ordering differs from a normal dictionary in that a word is listed under its root rather than under its prefix. The difference from a "tergo" or reverse dictionary is that all members of a root family are listed together, rather than in different sections, such as verbs (under -en), nouns (under -ung), adjectives (under -lich), etc."
-from the book's Introduction

3. "Each German word family is listed in column format so that the user can obtain an overview of the full extent of each word family."
-from the book's Introduction

4. "Each word family is accompanied by an English translation of all German words."
-from the book's Introduction

5. "The German Word Family Dictionary brings order to the problem of confusing look-alikes (e.g., Aufsatz and Aussatz; Betrag and Beitrag; Vertrag and Vortrag) by listing these similar sets in close proximity to one another, and by presenting an English translation for each word to highlight the difference."
-from the book's Introduction

6. "As the student becomes familiar with the common semantic denominator of a given family, he finds it easier to "guess" or "predict" the meaning of new prefixed words that he encounters for the first time in his reading."
-from the book's Introduction ( )
