Now available in paperback, this major new Hindi-English dictionary (the first published for over a century) has been produced to meet the need of a growing number of people now learning and studying Hindi. Reflecting the many-sided development of Hindi during the 20th century, it providesover 36,000 headwords, with generous use of illustrative material showing words in use. Both colloquial and literary vocabulary is covered, together with some modern regional variants. The `Urdu' vocabulary of Hindi is well represented, as well as modern Hindi and English.
Ronald S. McGregor has been a lecturer in Hindi at Cambridge since 1964. He is the author of many publications on the Hindi language and its literature.
