    It's very thoughtful of you Milena, as always Thanks. Zargan is good also, not better than Tureng of course.

    PS:Can you help Oriee about that?:

    Thanks for passing by silver moon.

    I read that post of Oriee before, but I can't recall it right now, maybe it's one of those we posted above.

    No need to thank Milena

    It may be that "Turkishclass" dictionary. Even if it isn't, it will be a good alternative.

    Hi Milena and all, they need internet connection, but what I need is an english-turkish & turkish-english dictionary for my computer (PC) as a free software not needing internet.

    Merhaba:
    I know that this thread seems to be more for online dictionaries but...I wonder if someone could recommend a good English-Turkish, Turkish-English (it doesn't matter which comes first) physical dictionary? I am currently using the large Yellow Langenscheidt New Standard Dictionary Turkish and there seem to be way too many typos and I have to keep gluing in the pages. I like to use actual dictionaries because I have a habit of reading them (It takes me forever to look up a word because of that.).

    Also I am wondering if I should get a Turkish dictionary (just Turkish) also. If so what would be a good one to get (I'm not talking about a little cheap pocket one that a highschool student would use at school - students in Canada use the English version of that and they are pretty thin on information). If I know a name and a price I can get someone on e-bay to go look for it for me in Turkey.

    Thanks

    Yeminli Sözlük
    Because someone asked (and this looked like a good place to put this):

    Here is a list of Turkish Grammar Books, Dictionaries and Other Resources that I have found and use and have found useful. (I have been working on my own.) I have commented on a number of them regarding usefulness.

    ISBN: 13: 978-1-58573-521-1
    ISBN: 10: 1-58573-521-3
    Langenscheidt New Standard Turkish Dictionary (2006)
    Note: This is what I have available. I am looking for a better one.

    ISBN: 978-975-7981-40-4
    Elementary Turkish: A Complete Course For Beginners - Kurtuluş Öztopçu Revised Second Edition in Two Volumes Volume 1 - Beginning Level (with CD) Volume 2 - Beginning-Intermediate (with CD) Kitap Matbaası, İstanbul, Turkey (2009)
    Note: Just got this! It has more pronunciation info as well as 2 CDs. Steep price for some (close to $90 CAD with shipping), but I think this is what the doctor ordered. It has excercises that keep it simple. It is designed for university level but I think it would be good for senior secondary school age also (students might be advised to try to enlist the aid of one of their language teachers even if they don't speak or teach Turkish).

    ISBN: 1-58901-057-4
    ISBN: 978-1-58901-057-4
    A Dictionary of Turkish Verbs In Context and By Theme - Ralph Jaekel and Gülnur Doğanata Erciyeş [Örneckli ve Tematik Türkçe Fiiler Sözlüğü] Georgetown University Press, Washington DC (2006)
    Note: This one also comes with a steep price tag (around $50 CAD with shipping) but it is worth it to understand how some of the verbs found in the dictionary above are used and also one can look up verbs in English and it will suggest the correct Turkish verb to look at as well as mentioning a little cultural info. Has a section on Proverbs and a Thesaurus. Really large thick book. Requires some initial reading on how to use and read this book or you will get lost. You need to know the suffix shorthand - eg. -lA.

    ISBN: 978-0-19-870036-4
    Turkish Grammar Second Edition - Geoffrey Lewis
    Oxford University Press (2000)
    www.oup.com
    Note: This one was recommended at http://www.cromwell-intl.com/turkish/Index.html (University Level book)

    ISBN: 0-340-49231-7
    Teach Yourself Turkish - Second Impression - Geoffrey L. Lewis Hodder and Stoughten (1989)
    Note: This one was also recommended at http://www.cromwell-intl.com/turkish/Index.html (University Level book)

    ISBN: 10: 0-8120-2034-0
    ISBN: 13: 978-0-8120-2034-2
    201 Turkish Verbs fully conjugated in all the tenses - Talat Sait Halman Barron's Educational Series, Inc. (1981) http://www.barronseduc.com
    Note: Verbs are only conjugated in main part of book in some positive tenses. One has to delve into the back of the book to find out how to deal with other tenses, negative and interrogative. This area is not written clearly and assumes that one has more than beginner level knowledge. Does have a comprehensive list of verbs that require the use of a "helping verb".

    ISBN: 9781840592986
    Fourth Company [Dördüncü Bölük] - Rıfat Ilgaz
    Milet Publishing Ltd (2001)
    www.milet.com orders@milet.com
    Note: Book has Turkish on left page and the translation in English on the facing page. Book is written at highschool level, but will give someone practice at translation and then you can check yourself on the opposite page. Good for students learning English or learning Turkish.

    ISBN: 978-1-74104-582-6
    Turkish - Lonely Planet Phrasebooks
    4th Edition (July-2008)
    Note: This might get one started on simple sentences. It has a dictionary and a food dictionary. It also has brief notes on sentence structure and various cultural does and don'ts. And Tarkan made it to page 81 of this edition - perhaps this is a little unfair on the other artists.

    ISBN: 13: 978-0-486-25064-9
    ISBN: 10: 0-486-25064-4
    Elementary Turkish - Lewis V. Thomas (Revised and Edited by Norman ItzKowitz Dover Publications Ltd. (1967) www.doverpublications.com
    Note: Has some quite noticeable errors but if your mind is mathematically wired you will like the way he does his verb endings and suffixes. (University Level book that probably would be better with the lectures it was intended to go with.)

    Youtube:
    LearnTurkishChannel
    -nice and clear
    -good graphics
    -some tracks have just music in the background
    -native Turkish speaker who learned English from an American-she's picked up a bit of a drawl in some English words
    -some tracks are bi-lingual
    -be prepared to hit pause and take notes

    iPod Applications
    There are a number of Dictionaries for the iPod touch. Note: Some do not work horizontally on the iPad and some do not work unless you are hooked up to a wifi network or have internet access. One has only native English speakers and is designed for Turks learning English but it can be used as a reference. A couple have both native English and Turkish speakers. Others are just dictionaries. Zargan is also on there.

    Flashcard Deluxe by orangeorapple for iPod and iPad is the best memory aid I have found so far and I tried out a number of others. - Yes you may have to program in your own words that you want to learn - you can use the Microsoft Excel work book and copy and paste to upload. (I find that the programming and writing actually help the learning process.) Requires network connection.
    Note: I am sharing files on this application and would really like a partner in crime to check my work for errors. I need a native Turkish speaker who speaks English to help me on this since my word lists have been derived from the dictionary mentioned above.

    Teach 2000 is a free flashcard program (they wouldn't mind donations though) that can be used on the computer as a testing device or one can print out flashcards on it. I stick these flat on my kitchen cupboards (with this non-damaging, non-toxic stuff that looks like silly putty) and fold down the Turkish word as I learn it - I can see progress and continue to test the English word until all words are learned then I move to the Flashcard Deluxe program. http://www.teach2000.org/

    Hope this list of resources helps others working on their own out there.
