      This Dictionary is a very important work on Ardhamagadhi. It was
      planned and executed on scientific lines by the Jaina saint Satavadhani
      Muniraja Ratnachandra in the early decades of the 20th century.

      Ardhamagadhi is an important offshoot of Prakrit, and is the principal
      language of the Svetambara canon.

      The dictionary spans five languages, Ardhamagadhi, Sanskrit, Gujarati,
      Hindi and English. A number of quotations from standard works
      explain the exact connotation of the word and its standard usage. The
      pronunciation is also given. In places, there are line drawings that
      explain certain Jaina phenomena such as the Jaina loka, etc.

      This Dictionary was first published by the Svetambara Sthanakavasi
      Jaina Conference in 1928. This was later reprinted in Delhi in 1988.

      While this dictionary does not cover the entire gamut of Prakrits, and
      restricts itself only to Ardhamagadhi Prakrit; students of Prakrit
      philology, Jaina philosophy, or the general history of Indian
      epistemological thought will find this dictionary to be highly useful.
