The first four kāṇṇās deal with synonyms and the fifth one with homonyms and indeclinables. Regarding the treatment of genders, the lexicon has followed Amarakosa. The genders are indicated by giving the declensional forms. The lexicon is composed in different metres. Halayudha mentions various authorities like Bhaguri, Vararuci and others.

context information

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
