Dear Customer At Oxford University Press South Africa we pride ourselves in publishing dictionaries in all our offi cial languages and for every age – suitable for South Africa’s multilingual context. Through our local dictionary publishing programme we stay committed to transforming lives through education.


We celebrate South Africa’s rich language diversity and truly believe that dictionaries are the key to unlocking literacy and learning. Dictionaries help you understand your mother tongue better, assist you when learning an additional South African language and help speakers of other languages excel in their studies when learning through the medium of English. Dictionaries also assist learners in home or online learning programmes, especially during school lockdowns necessitated by the Covid-19 pandemic.


The PIRLS 2016 results are alarming: only 22% of South Africa’s Grade 4 learners can read with comprehension, compared with the international benchmark of 96% (Prof. Sarah Howie and research team). In a country where the majority of learners switch to English as their Language of Learning and Teaching (LoLT) in Grade 4, a bilingual dictionary is the most crucial resource learners can use to improve their reading comprehension and overall results.


Our bilingual dictionaries offer support to all learners throughout their school career, from Foundation Phase right up to Grade 12. The Oxford First Bilingual Dictionary series is available in all offi cial South African languages (see pages 5–6). In 2021 we are publishing an expanded and improved 2nd edition for English with isiZulu, isiXhosa, Afrikaans, Northern Sotho, Sesotho and Setswana (see page 7).


For learners in Grades 4–12, we offer bilingual dictionaries in English with isiZulu, isiXhosa, Afrikaans, Northern Sotho and now also Setswana (see pages 8–10 for more information).


Once learners have progressed from using bilingual dictionaries to using English monolingual dictionaries, our best-selling school dictionary, the Oxford South African School Dictionary (4th edition), offers all the support learners need to succeed in their LoLT across all subjects.


This catalogue showcases much more of our extensive range of monolingual and bilingual dictionaries, both local and imported. To help make sense of the many products on offer, we have included a dictionary selector on pages 2–4. We hope the selector and catalogue help you decide which dictionary is best suited to you, your child or your learner’s needs.
