This dictionary is the continuation of the author's effort of compiling full- fledged Talyshi dictionaries, which is reflected in previous publications of Russian-Talyshi Dictionary (in 2 volumes; 82,000 words and word combinations. Baku: MBM. 2006-2008), Talyshi-Turkic Dictionary (M.:2010; 50 000 words and word combinations), Talyshi-Turkic Dictionary (Baku, 2011. 107,670 words and word combinations) and Russian-Talyshi Dictionary (M.: 2011; 6,000 words and word combiantions). The present dictionary is mainly based on V.K. Muller's English-Russian Dictionary (M.: 2009) and consists of 250,000 words and phrases. At the same time, other English language sources were used during the work.
It is mainly a translation dictionary. In some cases definitions of scientific and other terms are given. The dictionary has as its purpose to introduce main global centers of Iranian studies to the Talyshi language.
The process of collecting Talyshi words is not finished yet, thus the author pursues the goal of continuing his research in this direction, taking into account forthcoming suggestions and critical notes from scientists and common readers.
