Appendices deal with morphophonemic rules, speech etiquette, the contrast of the present and imperfect "a" forms of the auxiliary, and word order. (Clk)

5 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Marathi-English dictionary is intended for the adult student learning Marathi through the medium of English. It contains approximately 10,000 entries, most of which are basic words from which others can be derived. The words constitute a basic vocabulary, including the current meanings, and excluding obsolete meanings. In some cases, the definitions are more colloquial than those found in dictionaries. As an aid to the beginning student, irregular verbs are noted, as well as the subclass of feminine nouns. Derivational affixes are given as separate entities, and for some words, phrases in which they occur are provided. Entries are arranged according to the traditional order of the Devanagari script. Appendices consist of the Roman and Hindu calendars, and the numerals. (Clk)
