A huge, but handy, Tibetan dictionary, with many many definitions. It's very difficult, though, to learn how to use it, because you need to know what letters are silent to find a word. The transliteration next to each Tibetan word is a bit different from Wylie, but they indicated the silent letters with an underline. It's also nice that some geographical names as well as Buddhist terms (along with their Sanskrit equivalent) are found as well.
