My choice in the French bilingual dabbler category is Merriam-Webster’s French-English dictionary, available in 3-ring binder or shirt-pocket editions. With 40,000 entries in each part and a French verb conjugation table for all listed verbs, it provides good coverage for a list price of $4.95 US. The text is identical in the two editions, but reformatted for the two page sizes, so that familiarity with one carries over to the other.
