The Oxford English-Hebrew Dictionary is a landmark in the description of modern Hebrew. Using principles developed in English lexicography but never before applied to Hebrew, it is an essential reference for serious English and Hebrew users alike, whether students, scholars, or translators.
The dictionary reflects the development of Hebrew in the twentieth century, and with over 75,000 entries offers extensive coverage of current idioms and phrases, slang and colloquialisms, technical and scientific terminology, academic discourse, legal and medical terminology, American and Australian
terms, a labelling system allowing easy identification of senses, contexts, and registers.
