The introductory material contains descriptions of both monolingual and bilingual dictionaries, a discussion of the inadequacies of bilingual dictionaries in the areas of meaning, equivalence and grammar, and advice on choosing a dictionary. The annotated bibliography includes 16 bilingual dictionaries and glossaries in Vietnamese, Cambodian, Khmer, Lao, Meo, Hmong and English; one in Vietnamese, English and French; one in Hmong and French; and two monolingual English dictionaries for ESL students.
