Hello all
can anyone give the pros and cons of the Gelbrich dictionary, or suggest good alternative paper dicos in these fields?
Thanks - any comments much appreciated

Gelbrich OK Dec 14, 2006

I've relied upon Gelbrich for a few years and have found it generally adequate, but last year I bought "Wörterbuch Bau" by Ekkehard Richter (DEEN) which strikes me as more comprehensive. A fellow Prozian, Victor Dewsbery, also contributed to the edition. I paid about 60 EUR last year.

A new DE>EN edition of Buksch has been long in coming, and when it appears, I'll buy that, too.
