Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Easily understood usage and pronunciation guides open the book and include valuable references to regional and urban tonal distinctions."—Library Journal
Library Journal

Among the 25,000 entries in this bidirectional guide, Phan (Vietnamese in a Flash) has incorporated the newest vocabulary, including computer, web, technology, and pop culture terms. Each paragraph-long entry details bidirectional transliteration, part-of-speech designation, and use in common phrasing. The result is a complement to-but expanded version of-Phan's Concise Vietnamese Dictionary, which contains only 14,000 words. Easily understood usage and pronunciation guides open the book and include valuable references to regional and urban tonal distinctions. Small and lightweight, it will prove a serviceable all-around lexicon for quick reference and light translation. Recommended for collections supporting global and South Asian studies.
