Penang Hokkien–English Dictionary: With an English–Penang Hokkien Glossary is the first comprehensively compiled dictionary of Penang Hokkien and carries over 12,000 entries after more than three years of research using a Sunway University Research Grant.

The unique Tsiang-tsiu 漳州 accented Penang Hokkien is spoken in northern Malaysia — Perlis, Kedah, Penang and the coastal areas of Perak. A similar variant can be found in Medan, Indonesia. The spoken Hokkien language has now evolved over a significant amount of time and this new dictionary carefully captures the changes that have arisen. Apart from definitions in English, this dictionary offers a glossary for English words and their Penang Hokkien translations, as well as explanations and examples on how words or phrases are used.
This dictionary can be used as a reference for both native speakers and new learners of the language.
