English Vietnamese Mathematics Dictionary = Anh Viet Toan-Hoc Tu-Dien.
Vu, Dinh Luu
An English-Vietnamese math dictionary for Vietnamese high school and college students is presented. The dictionary was developed for students within the Vietnamese-speaking refugee community in Australia, many of whom are advanced in mathematics but are held back by their unfamiliarity with English terminology. The first column in the dictionary gives the English term; the second column its Vietnamese equivalent; and the third column describes and explains each term in Vietnamese. The first column is arranged in alphabetical order rather than under a general heading (i.e., inscribed angle and obtuse angle are alphabetically listed rather than under the general heading 'angle'). Where Vietnamese words of similar meaning correspond to the same English word, the Vietnamese words are separated by commas, and when an English word has more than one meaning in Vietnamese, these meanings are numbered. Cross references are also included, and a table of mathematical symbols is appended. (SW)
