Nānārthaśabdakośa (नानार्थशब्दकोश) is also known as Medinikosa written by Medinikara(13th C.A.D.). In this lexicon the arrangement of the words is according to the final letter and also the number of syllables in each word. As in some other lexicons, the indeclinables are given at the end of the lexicon. Later lexicographers and commentators have quoted this lexicon in their works, which may testify to the merit of the lexicon. The author quotes several authorities. However there are divergent opinions as to its merit. While Aufrecht condemns the lexicon as faulty and records that this lexicon is nothing but a reproduction of Viśvaprakāśa, Śeṣagiri Śāstri, observes that of all the works of the kind Nānārthaśabdakośa is the best.
