The new paperback edition of the Oxford Hindi-English Dictionary by R.S. McGregor, first published in 1993, is one of the most essential dictionaries for Hindi-English translations. The book serves as the ultimate reference guide in modern Hindi for everyone, ranging from students and scholars to professionals and translators. The book encompasses the language in all its complexity and even trespasses into advanced usage, with words in Hindi that denote new and emerging 20th century technologies. It is truly comprehensive, with over 70,000 entries, and contains regionally nuanced variants. The book provides illustrated instances of actual usage for all the words. Reflecting the steady evolution of modern Hindi, Oxford Hindi-English Dictionary covers the corresponding Urdu vocabulary too, and has more than 36,000 headwords.
