This convenient pocket dictionary--an abridged and updated edition of the acclaimed Oxford English-Arabic Dictionary of Current Usage--is designed for both the English speaker learning Arabic and the Arabic speaker learning English. It records the different levels of usage found in newspapers, radio, television, and films, providing major Arabic dialectal equivalents for familiar, colloquial, and slang words. Ideal for the student or traveler, the dictionary includes:

* Nearly 40,000 entries providing English headwords with multiple meanings and their nearest Arabic equivalent.
* For Arabic speakers: phonetic equivalents for headwords, phrases illustrating unexpected and alien idioms, and explanations of headwords denoting concepts new to the Arab world.
*For English speakers: vowels and diacritics included in the Arabic text, irregular plurals of nouns, and simple verb conjugations in the imperfect tense.
* Meticulously transcribed Arabic characters for easy
reading.

"The most appropriate dictionary to recommend to English speaking students for Arabic composition--in terms of clarity, a reasonably comprehensive word list, and in terms of value for expenditure. I recommend it highly to my students."--Seth Ward, Yale University
