Joseph Privitera has put a lot of effort into conserving the Sicilian Language, and for that, I respect him. But otherwise, his books aren''t very good. They contain a lot of Italianisms. You''d be better off buying an Italian dictionary and understanding the phonetic differences between Sicilian and Italian than buying this phrase book. Instead, I recommend that you spend your money on Mparamu Lu Sicilianu by Gaetano Cipolla or Introduction to Sicilian Grammar by JK Bonner. Both of those books will get you further in Sicilian than this phrase book.

If you''re expecting to find indigenous Sicilian words in this dictionary, you''ll be greatly disappointed.
Most of the listed words are basically Italian with a Sicilian spelling or pronunciation. Sicilian is a
latin-based language that is richly endowed with words and expressions of Greek, Arabic, Norman,
Swabian, Spanish, French, Catalan, and Provençal origin___little of which appear in this book.
Don''t waste your money on this book.

I was really surprised to find this dictionary! Have not gone completely through this handy reference book, but so far have only found one word...actually a combination word ... that I was trying to translate that was missing. The pronunciation guide is helpful, as are the common phrases. It''s a little larger to carry in a purse than I''d like, but is easy to read for "old" eyes! The book is a great complement to several other books on Sicily that I''ve found.

Not too bad because growing up I never saw the Sicilian words written, I only remember how they sounded. Some of the Sicilian words I knew were not in the book.

Why a Phrasebook?

Still pretty cool, but if only a few very old people in Sicily still speak Sicilian (the language there now is Italian) WHO AM I GONNA USE THE PHRASEBOOK ON???

As good as a dictionary can get but there are many words that are not there. Needs to be expanded.
Reviewed in the United States on February 14, 2014
My knowledge of Sicilian is enough to see that many old words were not included. Perhaps some words were just used in certain regions of Sicily.

Not much good, most words not being covered
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on January 23, 2015
Bought in the hope it would help with Camilleri''s wide use of Sicilian dialect in his novels. Not much good, most words not being covered. It''s basically a tourist handbook, but the basic grammar introduction is quite useful.

Sicilian dictionary
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on October 7, 2017
The book was most helpful when we went on holiday. We did find however that most people speak Italian now, which was a surprise. The text was a little out of date as the curancy is the euro.

No shipping issues. FYI: I went to Castellamare del Golfo and some little towns around there and guess what? They speak Italian just fine. So in retrospect I should have gone with that phrasebook.
