Anekārthatilaka (अनेकार्थतिलक) is also called Nānārthatilaka compiled by Mahipa (before 1434 A.D.). The lexicon has four kāṇṇās, each kāṇḍa having 45,362,290 and 213 verses respectively. The division of the kāṇṇās is based on the number of syllables of words. The first kāṇḍa has words having single syllable and therefore termed ekākṣarakāṇḍa. The second is dvyakÆarakāṇḍa, the third is tryakṣarakāṇḍa. The sankirṇakāṇḍa deals with miscellaneous words having four and rarely five syllables. The arrangement of the words is generally in alphabetical order.
