This dictionary was first published in Myanmar (Burma) in 1993 and contains about 35,000 entries. The dictionary includes words from the modern general language vocabulary, as well as from literature, the names of common flora and fauna, and archaic and obsolete words. Many entries include examples of use, etymologies, and some illustrations. Words are spelled according to the standard orthography established by the Language Commission in 1986; a transcription system is also used as an aid to pronunciation for English speakers. This printing makes the Myanmar-English Dictionary available for the first time outside of Myanmar.
