The dictionary also contains a list of reversal entries, i.e. entries with English headwords. The reversal entries do not intend to form an extensive English-Samburu dictionary. To make best use of the English-Samburu part of the dictionary, the reader is asked to turn over to the Samburu-English part to get the full meaning of a particular word.
When there is more than one sense for a particular Samburu word, the reversal entries include a number that points out which sense of the Samburu word is relevant to the English headword.
