THE Concise Oxford English-Arabic Dictionary of Current Usage, a shortened and up-dated form of the 1972 Oxford English Arabic Dictionary, is designed to meet the needs both of the Arabic speaker who is learning English and of the English speaker who is learning Arabic. The increased pace of language change in recent times has been reflected in the media and the editor has been at pains to record the different levels of usage met with in newspapers, radio and television as well as film.
Where familiar, colloquial and slang levels are indicated the major Arabic dialectal equivalents have been given. The special needs of the Arabic speaker are catered for by the inclusion of phonetic equivalents for head-words, phrases illustrating unexpected and often baffling idioms, as well as succinct explanations of head-words denoting concepts new in the Arab world. To assist the English speaker vowels and diacritical markings have been included in the Arabic text, also irregular plurals of nouns and guidance on how the simple verb is conjugated in the imperfect tense.
Special attention has been given to the layout which is so organized that English head-words are easy to find and subdivisions of meaning clearly differentiated.
