Back of the Book:
To make this dictionary useful and positive to a wider circle of students and scholars, the work has been presented in a tri-lingual form with suitable derivations of words as far as feasible. The words and their derivations are presented in Nagari script to the advantage of readers. This is followed by the Bengali and then the English equivalents, which are drawn mostly from Monier-Williams and V S Apte's example. The dictionary will serve the purpose of Bengali and non-Bengali students and scholars, living in India and abroad.
So far as the signs are concerned, the etymological structures are given in brackets ; the suffixes added to verbs have been put after the minus sign (-) and those added to the nouns come after the plus sign (+). Alternative forms are shown under brackets  and while supplying their corresponding derivative character, the suffixes are put in brackets ( ).
When a particular word in its feminine gender carries a completely different sense, its corresponding meaning and the derivation in feminine form are shown separately in Nagari script. The semi-colon sign (;) used between English meanings indicates the difference in gender in the corresponding Sanskrit term.
