This 7,000-word dictionary is designed for English speakers learning Dari. The dictionary consists of two parts, the first a reference to find words easily translatable from one language to the other, the second a list of idioms and short phrases commonly used in everyday conversation, yet not readily translatable. Many of these entries have no adequate translation and may thus provide an insight into the Afghan culture. The list of translatable words gives Dari words in Arabic script and phonetic transcription. The list of idioms gives the phonetic transcription only. (JB)
