Welcome to online Sourashtra Vattaputki (Sourashtra Dictionary), the first of its kind !!

In the last 700+ years, we had been speaking Sourashtra Language, generation by generation, with very few loaned words from Marathi, Telugu and Tamil. But, in the recent times too many Non-Sourashtra words are getting blended with Sourashtra.

For instance, most of the Bhajjinu naavun (Spinach names) are getting loaned from local language. Similarly, when we say "Sourashtra konni azhinjuna", many people do not know the Sourashtra word for "azhinjuna". One of the reasons for this is, being "Poor" in Sourashtra vocabulary.

So, Sourashtra Vattaputki, compiled with thousands of Sourashtra words and practical vocabulary, can certainly help the Sourashtrians to enrich their vocabulary.

There are three ways to look for a word viz., Quick List, Alpha order and Search. Quick List is collection of related Sourashtra words grouped together under different categories. This will be handy when the user is looking a particular word under particular category. For instance, spinach names can be found under "Vegetables". Alpha Order, as the name implies, will display the words in Alphabetical order. Search feature will be useful when the user knows a word partially. By supplying a word partially, Search will display all words matching with search keyword.

Sourashtra Vattaputki will display words in Sourashtra and its meaning in Tamil and English. In addition, transliteration of Sourashtra words are available in Tamil, Devanagari and English for the benefit of those who cannot read Sourashtra Scripts.

For those who are interested in learning Sourashtra scripts, there are 14 online courses available. They can also practice Sourashtra scripts using online Slate feature which transliterates English to Sourashtra.

For the Sourashtra words to display properly, Unicode Sourashtra fonts such as Pagul, Phuul should have been installed and the browser font should be set to Sourashtra Font. Please refer FAQ for more details.
