Cultural Writing. Reference. Middle-Eastern Studies. This is the third edition of Darius Gilani's popular English-Persian (Farsi) dictionary. It includes approximately 22,000 entries and provides the Persian equivalent of an English word, rather than using a descriptive definition. The pronunciation of the Persian rather than the English is emphasized, and the more commonly preferred American usage is cited instead of the British usage that Persian dictionaries have historically used. Gilani is a native of Iran, spending most of his life in the United States studying and teaching languages. He received his BA in 1976 from San Jose State University and completed his MA in linguistics at the same university in 1978. He taught Persian at San Jose State and Stanford universities for fifteen years.
