HAT 5th edition with CD-ROM

The Handwoordeboek van die Afrikaanse Taal, abbreviated to HAT, (English: "Hand dictionary of the Afrikaans Language") is an Afrikaans descriptive dictionary consisting of a collection of Afrikaans words and their interpretations in book form.

History[edit]

The first edition of the HAT was published in 1965 by Voortrekkerpers, which later merged with Afrikaanse Pers Boekhandel to become Perskor.[1] Two more editions of the dictionary were published by Perskor, before Pearson Education acquired the publishing rights in 2008. The latest edition, HAT5, was published in September 2005.
