    How does the Sokoloff dictionary compare to Jastrow in usability?

    Menachem Mendel:

    In many ways Jastrow is easier to use, and much cheaper. Sokoloff reflects more recent opinions about Aramaic, but often the added information makes an entry too busy. I usually first look at Jastrow, and only later at Sokoloff.
