Dictionary Home

MashiThantu is a software collection to promote the use of Malayalam language in the dynamic worlds of internet communications. As we believe in the age old saying – A journey of thousand miles must begin with a single step and as a first step, we take great pleasure to introduce a Malayalam-Malayalam-English dictionary (beta). A full fledged Malayalam Text Editor and a Spell Checker are in the pipeline.

Nighantu Approach
The text box provided in the left top corner of the page enables you to type Manglish and the suggestion box simultaneously displays the corresponding Malayalam words. Use “Find Meaning” button to get the meaning (if it is present in the dictionary).

You may use Google Search button to search a Malayalam word in Google.

This dictionary is targeted to add 45,000+ words to its database.

    First of all congratulations to all, who made this possible.
    It looks good. Let each day be the stepping stone to a perfect Malayalam Online Dictionary.
    I have a suggestion, it would be better if you could show the Malayalam Alphabets even when it is idle. Now the Alphabet Screen clears off very fast.
    Your effort is highly appreciated.
    Best Wishes.

    Dear Mashithantu,

    It was on accident I found Mashithantu and was surprised to know such a site exists!
    To Keralites who live outside India where a ref. book like ‘Sabdatharavali’ is the last thing available, your dictionary is very useful. I write in Kuwait Times, Deshabhimani Weekly and Ayanam net magazine.. And when I need to confirm any special literary Mal’m word, it is easy now. I have Mashithantu.

    I sincerely thank you for your great effort and service.
    My special congrats for the lipi-click arrangement that makes the access trouble-free.
    Please be in touch.

    With regards and best wishes,

  • Faisal Rahman

    IDear all,

    It would have been perfect if you guys could provide the three forms of a verb and their meaning along with the requested word.

    For example,

    User asking meaning of ‘take’

    then with the meaning of the word ‘take’ ,its other forms should also come. i e. took and taken with meaning.

    It will provide a better base to the People to get aware of other forms and its usages.

    If you visit dictionaries like Dictionary.Cambridge.org etc you can see such advanced level of information.

    Please look in to this matter little bit seriously if it is not a big task.

    Thanks and regards,

    If not kindly see what you can do to correct the code.




  • Rajaram Menon


    I’m quite saddened by the fact that no website gives the English equivalents for stars – Ashwathi, Bharani, Karthika……etc. I could gather a few from old books, but somehow the full list of equivalents in English is not available. For example, when I look for Makayiram, the equivalent should be ‘Orion’. The answer now get is an ‘additional info’, not the translation. If it’s Thiruvathira, the answer should be ‘Betelguese’. Can you update your dictionary. You will probably get the info from scientists from Cochin university or even journalists from Trivandrum Doordarshan? Film actor Nedumudi Venu had anchored some documentaries for Doordarshan. You can check with him too for help.

    The meaning of the word, mashithantu, not found in the dictionary?

  • http://mashithantu ravi varma

    This dictionary is certainly an achievement, and congratulations to the team

  • Matthew

    Would it be possible to specify the part of speech along with the meaning? The verb form and noun form might have different meanings. Hence the meaning has to reflect this.

    For e.g. the word ‘brood’. (n. a group with similar natures; v. to ponder)

    Thank you.

    I think the female of avathaarakan should be avathaaraka and not avathaarika, which has another meaning

  • Mubashir

    This is an awesome,superb,adioli,acha dictionary.
    I have one suggestion too.The malayalam letters should be big enough to read.


  • Mubashir

    This is a developing dictionary,but this has only 1 or 2 meaning/s,the meanings should be increased.
    I have one suggestion too,the malayalam letters should be big enough to read.


  • vensh

    mobilization meaning is not accurate

  • HARI

    ‘Fanatic’ is a generic world which is described as one having ” uncritical devotion” to a cause. This need not be specifically a relegious one. As such malayalam translation given here does not seem appropriate as it covers only religious fanatic. For eg; what word to be used for, say a person who is a fitness fanatic or a political fanatic or a fanatic atheist.
    Therefore a better word needs to be coined. Regards

  • Abdul Basith

    First of all, Thank you very much for your effort.We expecting more words and good result.

    the website should distinguish between samskrtam and malayalam words. original malayalam words like Amma are falling behind. Please see wikipedia Malayalam = Dravidian family, while samskrtam belongs to Indo-Europian family.
    So words in samskrtam should be removed or marked in this dictionary. This website as it is, is a disgrace to the real Malayalam language. Please correct this foolish website. Amma, Appa, Chechi, Chettan is the only correct Malayalam. [editted] This website is ANTI-Malayalam.

    There is no link to dictionary.mashithandu from this page

  • http://yahoo rajesh

    mashithandu seems to be good, but for many simply words i could not find the meaning in it. actually it was not available in mashithnadu. The website has to be more adequate to reach to people who looks for meanings.

    an exmaple: there is no meaning for “Soften” is a very simply word.

  • nazarath

    it is really bad i like the old mashithandu i am not satisfied with this
    today i type more than 30 words no mening !

  • Matthew

    Could you have the new version show similar words as well. This feature was present in the old version. It is very useful when the correct Malayalam spelling isn’t known.

    How do I get the word in Malayalam script for “Bengal Gram” or simply “gram” ?
    A simple search on internet gets “kadala” for Bengal Gram.
    For instance, http://www.nriol.com/resources/grocery/malayalam.asp

    Best wishes and regards,

  • Zak

    It is really very sad that meaning of words like ” request” , ” update” is not available. The Older version of Mashithantu was much better and had more meanings . Can you provide any other site which gives malayalam word meaning

  • sakkeer

    good very good

  • Mansoor makkiyil

  • Abhilash

    After getting the reslut for a malayalam word, if I need to check the meaning of another Malayalam word, There is NO option to get the virtual Mal- key board. At least a link should be provided to the dictionary home again, where I can get it.
