Abstract: Huihuiguan zazi, a New Persian glossary compiled in China during the Ming period (1368–1644), has been largely neglected in the linguistic study of Persian despite its obvious importance as a source of data on the historical development of New Persian. In this article, all entries in one particular manuscript of huihuiguan zazi are tabulated and supplemented with translations and transcriptions, thus rendering the linguistic information contained in the glossary easily accessible to linguists.
