Dictionaries:

 Gyldendals røde ordbøger (Gyldendal's red dictionaries)
    Dansk-engelsk,  ISBN 87-00-73972-3 (niende udgave, 10. oplag)
    Engelsk-dansk,  ISBN 87-01-09312-2 (11. udgave, 6. oplag)

   These dictionaries are very much the standard dictionaries in use. In
   the same series Gyldendal publishes Danish-German and Danish-French
   dictionaries plus a couple of others.
   
   They are, however, rather expensive in the States (over 100 dollars
   the pair). Persons who are just starting out might buy the yellow
   pocket-size Berlitz dictionary (ISBN 2-8315-0946-7), available in many
   bookstores. Unlike the Gyldendals books, it does indicate
   pronunciation, which can be a help to students. Readers might want to
   stay away from the Hippocrene Practical Dictionary, which does not
   indicate the genders of nouns.
