Practical Spelling Dictionary Out Now


The Translation Centre under the Cabinet of Ministers of the Azerbaijan Republic (AzTC) is pleased to announce that it has published Practical Spelling Dictionary of the Azerbaijani Language.

The editorial board have compiled the dictionary by the selection of native and borrowed words and terminology rather than the word count.

The chief points of note as regards the new edition are a single form of words and terminology, given in two or even three variations in previous dictionaries, the dictionary's inclusion of archaic words that have long since been out of use, but retained their value and significance in different branches of activity, recovery and interpretation of cognate words in order to better understand and use them, as well as the inclusion of more than one thousand native Azerbaijani words and discipline-specific terminology never included in a spelling dictionary.

The compiler is AzTC Director Afag Masud. The editor is Academician Nizami Jafarov.
