This is an illustrated bilingual dictionary in full colour throughout. It would be of particular benefit to secondary school and university students as it covers a wide vocabulary (over 26,000 words) without being overly technical. Many of the illustrated words are captioned in English and Arabic with a demonstration of how to employ the word in a sentence. The Arabic is partially vocalized. Appendices include English-only notes on the following topics: ordinal and cardinal numbers; fractions and mathematical symbols; units of weight, measurement and temperature. There is also a list of English irregular verbs (infinitive, past tense, present and past participles) and a list of the elements of the periodic table in English and Arabic (name, chemical symbol and atomic number). A further nine-page appendix is provided showing English-language maps of some of the major regions of the world.
