The compilation of this comprehensive dictionary was suggested on the completion of the five-volume International Planning Glossaries. Although the publication of the fifth volume on Planning and Development completed the original programme, it was found that a very substantial number of items of interest to planners fell outside the main classification of subjects embodied in the five volumes. This strongly suggested the publication of a comprehensive dictionary which would concentrate all the essential items in one convenient volume.

This dictionary is the result; it provides a complete and up-to-date selection of terms currently in use in the many inter-related fields covered by town and country planning. The terms are listed alphabetically in English order with, where appropriate, American equivalents and equivalents in the other languages. Alphabetical indexes for these other languages are also provided. Definitions are included wherever this is necessary to give precision. Cross references are also given for a large number of terms to related terms with which comparison can be usefully made. In all languages synonyms are included where these are in common use.

Although this volume is designed to be used independently it may also be found invaluable for use in connection with the five volumes of the International Planning Glossaries to which cross-references are provided and where can be found a fuller discussion of the subject matter. About 2/3 of the terms have been selected from the five volumes. Members of the many professions concerned with some aspect of physical planning will find this an invaluable reference to the ideas of their colleagues in related professions.
