  • The English base of the dictionary, taken from the Oxford Student's Dictionary (3rd Edition) has been adapted for Indian readers.

  • Words like 'call centre', 'camera', 'dashboard', 'e-book', 'email' and 'malware' which do not have equivalent Malayalam words have been explained by detailed definitions.
  • Many words such as 'computer', 'multiplex', 'smartphone' and 'software' have been written out in Malayalam to show that such words have now been included in the language.
  • The Malayalam translation is simple and reflects the current usage of the language.
