There follow live appendices (anubandhah): bibliography of works cited (udahrtagranthanam suci, 425-37). alphabetical index of verses cited (suban-tapadarthavicare udahrtanam slokanam akaradikramena suci. 439-44), index of terms explained (vivrtanam padanam suci, 445-48), alphabetical index of explanatory principles (subantapadarthavi-care vyutpattinam akaradikramena suci, 449-50), and index of words and utterances cited to illustrate verbal cognitions (sabdabodhartham udahrtanam padanam vdkyanam ca sua, 451-56). Preceding the main part of the book, and separately paginated, are a lengthy introduction (upodghatah. 1-35) and a detailed Sanskrit table of topics (visavasuci, 37-51). These in turn are preceded by a note (unnumbered) by Francois Grimal, head of the program, a single-page (unnumbered) table of contents in English, (1) Sanskrit summaries of the entire four-volume work (sabdabodhamimamsagranthasya samksiplaparicayah) and of this third volume (subantapadarthavicaratmakasya trtiyabhagasya samksiptam svaru-pam), (2) acknowledgments (krtajnatannivedanam, v), and a table of abbreviations (sanketasuci, vii-xi).
