1563 Kindle pages give users 5 times more vocabulary

Colorado Springs, Colorado; April 4, 2017. Out of the way, apes - King Kong has moved in. With 1563 Kindle pages, the new “French Phrasebook & Dictionary” has five times as many pages as the next biggest one. In fact, it has more pages than the next eight Kindle French phrasebooks combined. Aside from the steroids, the book also provides the user with three innovations for easier usage:

  • Phrases and terms have been grouped under the key word(s) that they contain, and the key words are in alphabetical order, as in any dictionary. A person has only to think of the key word in a phrase and look it up alphabetically.
  • The letters of the alphabet in the Table of Contents (TOC) have been divided into sub-sections, thus enabling the user to move closer to a desired place when navigating by the TOC.
  • A tiny x has been placed in front of each main-entry (key) word to improve search efficiency. When the user types an x in front of a word in a search, he/she gets only that main word as a result, instead of the usual mass results for all instances of the word in the book.

A forty-two-page menu guide leads the user into the galaxy of French culinary delights, and an eleven-page appendix gives a concise overview of French grammar. Eight other appendices deal with alphabet & pronunciation, numbers, clock & calendar time, adult heights and weights, metric measurements, and common French signs & labels. A map of France is provided at the back.

Mathieu Herman, an Alzheimer’s researcher and professional translator, provided the French equivalents of the English and the pronunciation. Mathieu was born in France, earned a degree at xxx, and currently resides in New York. Robert Powers, a retired US Army linguist and book publisher, compiled the English portion of the book. He hails from Portland, Oregon, graduated with a degree in Slavic languages from the University of Washington, and currently lives in Spokane, Washington.
