The Comprehensive Dictionary of the Contemporary Ukrainian Language
Explanatory (Uk-Uk) 1058→1045
The Comprehensive Dictionary of the Contemporary Ukrainian Language is an all-round reference book, combining the comprehensive coverage of an academic work with the conciseness of a one-volume edition. The Dictionary contains about 250,000 words and phrases, including those that have come into the language in the last decade. Besides the core Ukrainian lexis, the Dictionary also includes major science and technology terms and words describing the facts of contemporary industry, culture, and daily life. Encyclopaedic comments provided in some of the entries distinguish the Dictionary from similar reference works.
The Dictionary is intended as an easy-to use reference book for a general readership: senior pupils, students, postgraduates, teachers of Ukrainian, and for all learners and speakers of Ukrainian.
