This second member of Ronald Lee's Kalderash dictionaries presents the same format as its predecessor but is longer and,
therefore, contains more vocabulary. Both the Kalderash-English and the English-Kalderash volumes often give sample
sentences which show the entries in a sentence, and both give an introduction to grammar.
The reader/student should keep in mind several things while utilizing the dictionary: 1) Kalderash Romani has several dialects, the most common in North America being the Serbian and the Russian. The Argentine (Arxentino) dialect of Kalderash is also spoken (terms such as Serbian, Russian, Argentine, etc. refer to a Romani group's last country of habitation prior to immigrating to the U.S. or Canada); 2)the Romani entries in the dictionaries are all Kalderash but this does not mean that each entry is used by ALL Kalderash speakers any more than ALL speakers of English use the exact same vocabulary for the same items; in the U.S. many speakers of Romani are using anglicized vocabulary for various items; for example, English "room" is now commonly translated in Romani as "rumo," not "soba," which is considered an "old" word (although it is actually Serbian); 3) Mr. Lee gives the sample sentences as people speak, and the student should study the colloquial usage of the entries; Romani is a very vibrant, expressive language that has for centuries been primarily an oral language; it must be remembered that the majority of Rrom, especially of the older generation, have had little formal education and most of them are illiterate in Romani (although this is changing somewhat).
Ronald Lee's Kalderash dictionaries represent years of work and he has done an excellent job of presenting thorough dictionaries of Kalderash Romani. I find myself often pleasantly surprised as I browse through these two dictionaries and I
come across an entry which I have not heard since I was a child, some 50 years ago. These two volumes, together with Ronald Lee's Kalderash grammar, "Das Duma Rromanes," put the student of Kalderash Romani well on his/her way to a knowledge of the language.

Ronald Lee's dictionary contains a wealth of information on both Kalderash Romani (Rromanes) grammar as well as vocabulary, thus doubling the usefulness of the book.
One thing that Lee does that makes this dictionary a valuable research tool is that he specifies whether the word cited is American or European usage. For example, the verb 'to play'(an instrument) is 'bashavel' or bashalel' (in the Serbian Kalderash to which I am accustomed) but most American Rrom say 'pleyil.' Mr. Lee has entries 'bashavel' (Eur.) and 'pleyil'(Amer.), thus letting the reader know which word is used where. It is useful to know the European Rromani words, with the influx of European Rrom immigrating to the U.S.
The student of Kalderash should be aware that there are several dialects of Kalderash: the Serbian and Russian varieties are the most common in the United States. The vocabulary in this dictionary will be understood by all speakers of Kalderash.
Hopefully, the English-Kalderash dictionary will be released soon, as a complement to this fine work.

Shakespeare said it best. I just enjoy finding new words for writing stories. This book gives me the words of another culture, Romani.
