How to Use
By matching the group number of the word from the index with the first group number of the word from the contents, the corresponding headword from the contents will give you a rough idea of the meaning of the word. All the missing information is to be filled in by yourself.

Word Classification
It also allows you to find 213 groups of words by looking at the contents of the dictionary. Each group of words is assigned a number. After all, numerals are the universal language.

How it Works
Based on clinical observations, it is believed that the index of words is stored in the Wernicke's area at the base of left temporal lobe of your brain, and the contents of words (actually and mostly pictures) in your right brain. One picture is worth a thousand words. Like space and time, matter and energy, contents and index are two faces of one creature. The left brain communicates to the right brain by number, not by word. (Karl Wernicke, German neurologist, 1848-1905)

Words are stored in the nerves cells which are found in the cerebral cortex of the brain. They are arranged in folds or convolutions separated by fissures. Numerals are the nerve fibers which are found in the white matter below the cerebral cortex. The right and left cerebral hemispheres are connected by a bridge of white matter, the corpus callosum.

The left brain is concerned with analytical tasks, categorization, logical organization, information sequencing, complex motor functions, equations, formulae, recipes, grammar and word order. It can speak, write and make mathematical calculations.

The right brain is concerned with the perception and matching global patterns, part-whole relationship, spatial orientation, creative sensibility, musical patterns and emotional expression or recognition. It, although mute, can read and comprehend the meaning of simple, mono-syllabic nouns but cannot understand adjectives or verbs. It can only perform simple additions up to 20 but cannot subtract, multiply or divide.

Roger Wolcott Sperry (1913-1994), American neurologist, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 1981 for his discoveries concerning "the functional specialization of the cerebral hemispheres".

Reflections
Our brain is the miniature version of our Globe we are living in. The index system from the West and the word classification system from the Far East are linked together by the Hindu Arabic numerals from the Middle East.
