Persian Vocabulary A. Lambton
This work, a companion to Professor Lambton's Persian Grammar, is intended mainly for the student of contemporary Persian; however, it will also be a useful handbook for those who wish to read classical Persian literature. The Persian-English and English-Persian sections contain a wide range of the more common words and phrases. Contents: Notes on transcription; Persian-English vocabulary; English-Persian vocabulary. 1988, paperback, 394pp.
"This vocabulary, though originally designed as a companion volume to Dr Lambton' Persian Grammar, is in fact an independent work. Its Persian-English and English-Persian sections are complementary and represent a practical, concise record of modern Persian vocabulary such as can be found nowhere else at the present time."
