 English-Malay Dictionary from pgoh13 dotcom 

Updated on 01 September 2012 (more new words and idiomatic expressions have been added)
Type English word:   


For practical reasons (to avoid ambiguity and hesitation) I have decided to discard the hyphen in hyphenated words and to treat them as a single word. Thus if you should type "absent-minded", "run-of-the-mill" or "state-of-the-art" (i.e. with the hyphens) you will not get an answer but if you type "absentminded", "runofthemill" or "stateoftheart" (yes, without the hyphens) you would. Over the course of time hyphenated words tend to lose their hyphens anyway.
In general where there are differences between the American and British spellings I have kept to the British spelling rather than the American one (question of habit). So look under -our instead of -or (eg. "colour" not "color"), -re instead of -er (eg. "meagre" not "meager") and -ae instead of -e- (eg. "aesthetic" not "esthetic").
Verbs that can end in either -ize or -ise: Look for them under -ize as they won't appear under -ise (eg. "criticize" not "criticise"). The -ize form is acceptable both in British English and American English and is now considered to be the world English spelling for such verbs.
This dictionary is case-sensitive i.e. you have to type in capital letters the first letter of countries, days of the week, months of the year, languages, races, etc. (eg. "Sunday" not "sunday"). Same for acronyms eg. "BFF" not "bff").
Please note that scientific and technical terms are beyond the scope of this dictionary. Make sure that the word you are looking for is correctly typed. Typing condamn instead of condemn, insouscient instead of insouciant or berzerk instead of berserk will not get you an answer.
A word on common idiomatic expressions and phrasal verbs.  I try to include as many of them as possible (see the word "take" or "keep" to see what I mean) as their meanings are not at all obvious. In fact idiomatic expressions, when translated literally by machine translating programmes, often give hilarious results (such as "play it by ear" being translated literally into Spanish as "jugar por el oido"!) To give another example, the idiomatic expression "to have your work cut out" as in the sentence "With all this traffic jam, you will have your work cut out to get there by noon" is translated literally by the machine as "Dengan semua kesesakan lalu lintas ini, anda akan mempunyai kerja anda memotong ke sana menjelang tengah hari" which is quite nonsensical. Well, I suppose that's the main difference between human and machine translations, one sees the context and the other doesn't (or can't).
