Various Government publications such as the Fauna of British India edited by Dr. Blanford, Dr. Watts’s Dictionary of the Economic products of India, and the Madras Manual of Administration, have been duly laid under contribution.2. All words used in Telugu, both literary and colloquial, from whatever language they may have come, are given in the body of the work, so as to render the as of any other book of reference superfluous.3.

Cognate and compound words are grouped together under a need –word so as to afford a greater facility for the study of the Telugu language, and are printed in bold type.5. Wherever possible, the derivations of words are given, and similar forms in other languages are indicated. Many words given as native in Telugu Dictionaries are traced to a foreign origin.6. Many quotations from the Telugu classics which seemed unnecessary have been left out and several new ones have been added.
