PDF

The PDF dictionary is intended to be used on a computer rather than printed out, so it makes extensive use of links and the Adobe Reader sidebar.

You can find a word using the dictionary indexes or the thesaurus: these all link to the main word entries in the dictionary. There is just one index for English, but two for Egyptian- one is transliterated/pronounced, the other is arabic.

The dictionary entry for each word contains the main forms of the word in roman letters, phonetic writing and arabic It indicates how frequently the word is used, and also has a link to the thesaurus category for this word.

There are two versions of the PDF dictionary: one represents arabic words in both transliterated and phonetic formats: the other in pronounced format. If you are interested in learning to read and write arabic, we recommend the transliterated form: if you just want to speak arabic, the pronounced form is probably easier to use.

The thesaurus section provides listings of words with similar or related meanings: for example, in the 'Food' section there is an category for different types of fruits.

The Introduction to Egyptian Arabic gives a full description of the main syntax elements, with further information about things that you might use frequently, for example courtesies (Good morning, thank you) or numbers. There are about 1,500 example phrases or sentences to show how it's actually used.

It's a big document, and it would have been impossible without PDFreactor, an industrial-strength multi-platform PDF generator that dealt cheerfully with the thousand pages of text- and even got the arabic writing right!
