The most comprehensive reference work of its kind, this dictionary belongs on the desk of anyone with an interest in modern written language of the Mongolian People's Republic (1924-1992), and those of its successor, Mongolia. Compiled over the past 25 years, it comprises more than 26,500 main entries and numerous secondary entries, in Cyrillic orthography. Unlike previously published bilingual and Mongol-Mongol dictionaries, Bawden's lexicon is derived solely from current printed sources, making it completely up-to-date. Short quotations promote the practical understanding of the language, while Tibetan loan-words are highlighted in order to enhance the dictionary's utility and to facilitate further research.
