The dictionary presents more then 20,000 listings, many of which are not found in other Hebrew-English dictionaries. Special attention is given to the language of the media, with vocabulary that is likely to be found in newspapers, journals and contemporary fiction. Verbs have been listed by stem and not by root, so that no advanced knowledge of Hebrew grammar is needed. Since many Hebrew verbs require a preposition linkage between the verb and the following noun. And because a large number of abbreviations occur in modern Hebrew usage, the most common of these, spelled out in full, are included as a supplement to the dictionary.
