GUIDE TO THE USE OF THE DICTIONARY

ENTRY WORDS AND PHRASES

A. The Main Entry

The transliterated from is the main entry and follows the order of the Latin alphabet, without paying any attention to diacritical marks. Main entry words are set in boldface type and indented from the left-hand margin. Main entry words are syllabicated, with center periods between the syllables: ba.na.na, pai.sa. Due to etymology and the method of transliteration, the same order of letters may occur more than once but denoting different words. Therefore the reader should not confine his search to the first listing.

B. Derivatives and Compounds

When a word is formed by the affixing of a derivational suffix or built up by adding another word to a base form, the derivative or compound may be entered, and when necessary defined, within the definition block for the base form, rather than treated separately as a main entry: Priydarshi, Priysatya, Priytar and Priyvacan appear within the definition block of Priy.

Such subentries are made when the editor judges that the derivative terms within the definition block will be both readily and logically located by the reader. If the base form of the derivative or compound differs in spelling from the main entry, then it is regarded as sufficiently prominent for a separate main entry status and appears in its own alphabetical place: ba.ha.ne.baz is a main entry and not a subentry under ba.ha.na.

Derivatives and compounds are set boldface type and are not syllabicated.

C. Phrasal Entries

Main entry phrases will be found towards the end of the definition block after all derivatives and compounds. The phrases connected with a particular subentry follow the latter. All phrases are set boldface type.

D. Devanagari

Each transliterated entry, main, derivative and compound, is followed by its Devanagari equivalent. In certain cases, a word may be spelt in Devanagari is two different ways but is transliterated in one and the same way. In these cases, only one transliterated entry is shown, while the several Devanagari equivalents are separated by a comma.
