In the list of words, wish the der, die or das would precede it. The voice includes it; however, seeing it before the word would help me remember it.

Ich denke das Problem bei der Übersetzung von dictionary ist, dass man im Deutschen Unterscheidungen macht je nachdem welche Funktion das Buch hat. Wörterbuch, Nachschlagewerk, Enzyklopädie oder ähnliches.

Ja, ich habe auch "Wörterbuch" gelernt.


Ich habe viel Sachliteratur in letzter Zeit gelesen. Ich las Die Letzte Vorlesung, die Randy Pauschs Autobiographie ist. Es war sehr interessant. Ich kriege auch ein Paar Nachrichtenmagazine. Ich habe nicht viele Romane in letzter Zeit gelesen, und Selbsthilfebücher haben mich nie interessiert. Wenn die Jungen älter sind, werde ich wieder reisen, und benutze einen guten Reiseführer. Das wird viel Spaß sein!


(I have been reading a lot of non-fiction lately. I read The Last Lecture, which is Randy Pausch's auto-biography. It was very interesting. I also receive a few news magazines. I have not read many novels lately, and self-help books have never interested me. When the boys are older, I will travel again, and use a good travel guide. That will be a lot of fun!)

One non-fiction book is Sachbuch and several are Sachbücher. Sachliteratur is a category.


A Dictionary can also be a Wörterbuch. Wörterbuch is for translating/explaining words. For example a Deutsch-Englisch-Wörterbuch (German-English dictonary) or a Fremdwörterbuch (dictionary of foreign words).

Lexikon is used for encyclopedia (die Enzyklopädie) most of the time (though eine Enzyklopädie is more comprehensive)
