The first-ever comprehensive English-Balochi Dictionary (Engliś-Balóci Labzbalaɔ) has been published. Compiled by Dr. Naseer Dashti this is also the first of its kind written in Roman script. The script for the dictionary was adopted by Balochi Academy, Quetta in 2020.
After the publication of the first comprehensive Balochi-English Dictionary in 2019, this work is being considered by literary circles to be a milestone in Balochi language and literature.
Bringing together the Balochi equivalents of thousands of English words will certainly be a great help for learners, translators, scholars, and researchers.
It should be noted that Balochi is one of the oldest languages in the world but for various reasons, its development has been hampered. This dictionary in the Roman script is being welcomed as it will be a great step forward for the development of the Balochi language.
