Dictionnaire hindi-français

This dictionary is part of a set together with the Dictionnaire français-hindi (French-Hindi Dictionary) by the same author. Intended for beginners learning Hindi, but also for the Hindi-speaking user, it contains about 5,000 entries. The words are printed in large enough font to assist those who still struggle with reading the Devanagari script. For the benefit of Hindi speaking readers, the gender of French words and feminine adjectives are included. The translation into Devanagari is followed by its pronunciation in international phonetic notation. A letter between parentheses indicates the origin of the word, if known, and mentions its grammatical status. Many exemplar sentences help clarify the different meanings of the word in order to use it appropriately.
