Users who have not learned the Arabic script should consider the Romanized Pushtu Dictionary by Ghayan Chand also published by Simon Wallenberg Press and listed in Amazon. This dictionary was complied by Noor Mohammed Taraki and others at the Pashto Academy Kabul under the direction of the Academy's director general Abdur Raof Benawa.
