Some good things, but I think "Blues-Harfe" for blues harp is probably wrong, as it is probably "Blues Mundharmonika" or simply "Blues Harp" in German. I think.

Although the rest looks pretty good, and fairly comprehensive.

Thanks.

GER-ENG-GER dictionaries Jan 22, 2004

I am not in a position to respond to Kim's query but I would want to ask about dictionaries on MEDIZIN and CHEMIE available on CDs.

I have a choice to make but I would like to purchase a comprehensive one. AS regards the medical dictionries, the one by NÖhring is understood to be good, I donno!

Is the Dictionary on CHEMIE by the Technical University in Dresden? Wenske is rather toooooo Expensive (EUR 419 ???)

Please let me have some recommendations ! ! ! !

Blues Harfe Jan 28, 2004

I took a descriptive approach when compiling this dictionary. And since the term "Blues Harfe", funny as it may sound, is found on a Website of a German university I included it. Blues Harp is not only an instrument but also a style.

Thanks for all your input though, let me know if something else looks wrong. No dictionary can be perfect.

A descriptive approach was taken in the compilation of my dictionary. The word Blues Harfe, as funny as it may sound, appears on the website of a German university and was included for that reason.

Thanks for all your input, tell me if anything else looks wrong. I was very careful in translation but one makes mistakes when compiling a dictionary with over 2000 words! Thanks to you to Kim, for mentioning my resource here.

The dictionary was compiled with a prescriptive method. I found the word "Blues Harfe" on the website of a German university and included it because of this.

Thanks for all your input, let me know if anything else looks wrong. Thank you too Kim for linking my site here.
