This phonetic and grammatical introduction is excellent. The semantic subsenses of each English word are carefully distinguished and the format is dense and concise, so that there is no wasted blank space and not fat. The stylistic and semantic ranges of the entries are as broad as can be, including technical vocabulary as well as colloquialisms, and account is taken of the dialectical differences that have arisen between Tibetan-in-Tibet and Tibetan as spoken by the overseas communities in Inia, Nepal, and throughout the rest of the world.

Matisoff, University of California, Berkeley "There are a few English-Tibetan dictionaries in existence, but they are intended for use by Tibetans wanting to learn English and are of little if any value for those who want to learn Tibetan. Goldstein's dictionary is superb in that it provides idiomatic usage in Tibetan, proper orthography in Tibetan script and transcription, and phonemic equivalencies.

Goldstein has already become the leading authority on modern Tibetan lexicography. His dictionary will be an individual reference tool in this field.
