This Southwestern dictionary is intended as a key to the usage of typical Southwestern words in their literary settings. As to the form of the dictionary, the word is given first with the spelling that occurs in the quotation cited. If the word is of Spanish or Mexican origin the phonetic spelling follows in parentheses. The part of speech that it is comes next. If it can be used as more than one part of speech, the additional uses are also given. There follows the derivation of the word or the classification, such as Spanish, accepted usage, cowboy slang, or Indian, together with any English variants which the word may have. These variants are also listed alphabetically in their proper places.
