A new revised edition of the indispensable dictionary Whether you are newly arrived in Egypt and need to know the words for ‘bread’ and ‘apartment,’ or a long-term resident who suddenly needs to know how to ask for a picture frame or complain of a sore throat, this dictionary is for you.

The dictionary also provides stress rules and basic charts of verb endings, negation of verbs, form and use of numbers, pronominal suffixes, and comparatives and superlatives.
