Benson, Morton; Sljivic-Simsic, Biljana
More than 60,000 words and over 100,000 phrases and idioms are compiled in this dictionary of Serbo-Croatian based upon the vocabulary used by educated Yugoslavs and the daily press. The lexicon lists both Ekavian (Eastern) and Kekavian (Western) forms, giving illustrative phrases in the Eastern variant, and glosses in American English. Main entries, in boldface print, and their inflectional forms are marked according to the traditional four-accent system. Complete morphophological information is provided for inflected parts of speech. The dictionary includes important scientific and technical terms and some obsolete words and regionalisms which occur frequently in literature. An extensive introductory section, bibliography, and appendix are included. (RL/TM)
