The dictionary reflects the development of Hebrew in the twentieth century, and with over 50,000 entries offers extensive coverage of current idioms and phrases, slang and colloquialisms, technical and scientific terminology, academic discourse, legal and medical terminology, American and Australian terms, and a labeling system allowing easy identification of senses, contexts, and registers. For anyone interested in learning or translating modern Hebrew, The Oxford English-Hebrew Dictionary is an invaluable resource.
