Entries give attention to terms used in the media, and list current terms often found in newspapers, journals and fiction. 305 pages, written from right to left. Prepositional linkage between verb and noun is given; pronunciations, derivatives and often parts of speech are not given. 305 pages, softcover.
This dictionary was compiled with the intention of providing an up-to-date, easy to use, and inexpensive tool which would enable the student of the language to understand a modern Hebrew text. Special attention was given to the language of the media; thus, political terms and names of institutions have been included in abundance. The dictionary reflects the contemporary language of Israel which contains vocabulary from earlier periods, borrowings, colloquial expressions as well as recently coined words which have been accepted in common usage. Vocabulary that is limited to the spoken language and words that are borderline cases have been marked as 'colloquial'. Thousands of compounds, visually distinct as subentries, have also been included.
