Synopses & Reviews
This Compact English-English-Oriya dictionary is a bilingual dictionary developed especially for Oriya-speaking students and learners of English. It can also be used as a handy reference by general readers. The dictionary carries a large number of usage notes in Oriya that explain key elements of English grammar and writing as well as help with active vocabulary building. A lot of attention has been paid in the dictionary to providing help with pronunciation through the use of the International Phonetic Alphabet. Another feature that has been expressly added to help with comprehension is the inclusion of over 300 labelled illustrations. Appendices on fractions and decimals, mathematical expressions, conversions and Roman numerals have been included to help users access such information easily.
