About this book:

The popular Pharos Little Dictionary (2020, 14th edition, 12th impression) boasts a brand-new orange cover!

This handy bilingual dictionary, small enough to carry along anywhere, has been a firm favourite for decades – a quick reference work containing thousands of contemporary words and expressions, abbreviations and acronyms that are relevant for today’s South Africa.

Thousands of word options, near-synonyms, derivatives and compounds make the dictionary very useful. Pronunciation guidance is given in the form of accent marks to indicate the primary stress for each headword, derivative and compound. Guidance is also given for hyphenated words.

For easy reference, the names of SA’s nine provinces and eleven official languages are included at the back.
