This dictionary, first published in 1992, was updated and increased from 4,800 to 5,100 entries, including a contribution of technical terms came into use in recent years. It was conceived with a practical goal in mind and uses current Mongolian terminology. The entries are provided in both Cyrillic spelling (as used in Mongolia) and in Uygur-derived script (as used in Inner Mongolia and China). The examples and expressions offer more than just a simple vocabulary and are particularly useful in understanding certain sound particularities. The concise presentation of the Mongolian linguistic system found at the beginning of the volume allows the reader to become acquainted with the phonetic transcription used in the dictionary as well as with the two distinct Mongolian writing systems.
