The lexicon contains about 5800 verses arranged in six kāṇṇās. The arrangement is according to the number of syllables in a word. The kaṇṇās are further divided into sections depending on the genders of the words, viz., strilingādhyāya, pumilingādhyāya, napumsakalingādhyāya, vacyalingādhyāya and nānālingādhyāya. The arrangement is according to alphabetical order. The lexicon also deals with Vedic words, not generally dealt in most of the nonVedic lexicons.
