This book, written for easy reference in the form of a dictionary, contains many European words that have been indianized. Several of these no longer exist in British English.
India's contact with the West has resulted in the distinctive vocabulary of Indian English. This vocabulary began in the seventeenth century and has by now grown into a substantial body of words.
The present text is also a handbook for all users of English ho are uncertain of the 'correctness' of their speech and writing as well as for any one who wants to refer to differences between Indian and British uses of English words and phrases.
