This is a condensed, pocket-sized bilingual dictionary (English to Arabic and Arabic to English) containing some black and white illustrations. Arabic words are listed alphabetically by the first and subsequent letters rather than following the traditional root letter listing system. Nouns are given in their singular form only, and verbs are given in their third person past tense singular form. In the Arabic to English section, the Arabic word listings are vocalised.
