ABOUT THIS BOOK

The Rupa English-Hindi Dictionary includes features not found in most Indian bilingual dictionaries at present: * It contains more than 20,000 headwords and almost twice as many derivations, phrasal verbs and idioms * All translations have been given in simple Hindi keeping in view the diverse needs of English language learners in India * Instead of simple Hindi equivalents, descriptive meanings have been given for most words * Standard pronunciations of all headwords and, wherever necessary, of their derivations have been provided in easy-to-decipher Devnagri phonetic alphabet * Combination forms (with prefixes and suffixes) have been fully treated * Words from science and technology have been given extensive coverage . Many words have acquired new/additional connotations in Indian English. Such connotations have been taken note of and given along with the original meaning/translations of words
