A dictionary is a lasting companion to all, be it a learner or a scholar, a good dictionary is indispensable. We come to it again and again; from time to time, we refer, perceive, ponder and pause. It is something we like to possess, an undiminishing treasure we like to draw from again and again.
No doubt we have, here too, an umpteen number of books each laying large claims for superiority. But looks and claims are not worth a blade of grass. The proof is always in its usefulness.
The Special supreme feature worth mentioning is the pioneer inclusion of Tamil Phonetic Transcription with accents and additional faunts not found in the lexical world. This will help the nervous to check up their pronunciation or learn it anew. Weaklings will feel better and homely with the Tamil version. We have included a lot of words relating to computer hardware and software. The meanings of many words have been given pictorial explanations.
Perfect pronunciation is a hurdle to Tamil speaking people. Hence kindly go through thoroughly the all Phonemes at a Glance given in the coming pages.
