I found this dictionary and phrasebook quite helpful for basic purposes. But in asking my Armenian friend (speaks Eastern Armenian as her first language) for help, she was saying some of the things in the book (mostly grammatical items) were incorrect. Then I didn't know which things I could trust as accurate.
I bought this book for my husband, who is not Armenian, nor does he speak it. And Im so surprised how well he's learning the language. This book is helping him a great deal! I love the lil notes he writes for me in Armenian.
I used this dictionary and phrasebook enough that it fell apart while I was traveling in Armenia. It was ok for travel but I would not recommend it for study. My wife who is Armenian found many errors in the book when I would ask "Am I correct in my pronunciation?", she would respond "What!? Nobody says that, say it this way." The book also lacks many commonly used phrases that should have been included as well. As other reviewers have noted, the phrasebook and dictionary is Romanized and lacks Armenian script so is not useful for reading signage. A very good English-Armenian dictionary (not phrasebook) can be found while traveling in Armenia though, and uses Armenian script. It is titled English Armenian Dictionary and is a green and black book printed in Yerevan. It cost me 3000 dram while I was there, the equivalent of approximately $9 USD.
