With over 14,000 definitions, including everyday idioms and expressions, here is the perfect tool to support anyone learning Hindi

Essential Hindi Dictionary contains mutated forms of nouns, verbs, adjectives, and prepositions integrated into the main alphabetical structure. This enables you to trace the standard form of a mutated word without difficulty. Irregularly formed plural nouns are systematically included, and each Hindi verb is complete with its first person singular form in the present tense. In addition, many of the prepositions governed by various verbs are included. Throughout, the dictionary is illustrated with examples of language in action, with an emphasis on Hindi idiomatic usage.
The book also features a short introduction to some of the relevant features of Hindi grammar, including the conjugation of verbs and prepositions, the comparison of adjectives, forms of personal pronouns, and a summary of the main rules of consonantal mutation.
