Abstract:

Presented here is a pocket English-Dari dictionary, published in Kabul in 1967. It is meant to provide the vocabulary needed by English speakers to engage in everyday conversation. The dictionary includes a guide to pronunciation, brief notes on grammar, and a list of greetings and useful expressions. All Dari words are transliterated, using Roman script rather than the Perso-Arabic script with which Dari is written. Dari is the variety of Persian spoken in Afghanistan. It is, along with Pushto, one of the country's two official languages, spoken by approximately five million people. Dari is the language of instruction in schools in Afghanistan and the lingua franca most used among various communities who otherwise lack a mutually intelligible language. Another 2.5 million Dari speakers live in Iran and Pakistan.
