The Korean language is a common sight everyday on TV, magazines and other media. The Pocket Progressive Korean Dictionary, a full-fledged dictionary, enables readers to not only read Korean found now in their surroundings, but to even speak and write the language.
The Korean-Japanese portion of the dictionary contains 70,000 entries; the Japanese-Korean section has 20,000 entries. Included is an abundance of vivid usage examples which users can immediately use in conversations and compositions. Furthermore, vocabulary and word meanings shared between the people of North Korea and ethnic Koreans in China are robustly incorporated in the dictionary.
The JapanKnowledge edition lists the most significant entries in red and important entries in blue, making them easy to understand. In addition, parts of speech and technical terms are displayed in full without omission. Users can search not only for header entries but also idioms and proverbs.
A Hangul quick look-up chart and a verb conjugation chart, included in the print edition, can be viewed in PDF format from the dictionary’s text screen. Users can read the dictionary entries while referencing their pronunciation and conjugation.
The Pocket Progressive Korean Dictionary – JapanKnowledge Edition: an authoritative reference that empowers users for everyday study, travel and test preparations.
