One of the parts of linguistics is the science of words called lexicology. Lexicology is the part of linguistics which studies words. This includes their nature and function as symbols, their meaning, the relationship of their meaning to epistemology in general, and the rules of their composition from smaller elements. Lexicological issues are discussed and elucidated in general manuals and in specific scientific developments, and their results find a generalization and practical application in dictionaries, i.e. in lexicography.

This lexicon is claimed to be a practical complement to the theoretical formulations of lexicology and corrective sort of data in lexicography, where the etymological reference is rarely comprehensive and not always reliable. In the book, in the form of 357 dictionary articles and with the apparatus of the lexicological categories in front of the reader, many specific questions related to the origin and history of some of the words in the Bulgarian language are discussed. The explanatory notes draw information from the achievements of three other linguistic areas: etymology, semantics and word formation.
