The dictionary reveals the archaic Võru dialect, that was spoken in the eastern part of Võru county in the second half of the 19th and in the first half of the 20th century. The dictionary contains approximately 10,000 entries with usage examples. The dictionary has been compiled mainly on the basis of manuscript collections, compiled by Hella Keem, a dialect collector and linguist specialist in the Võru dialect. Everyday language spoken by the indigenous Võru people from Rõuge, Vastseliina, and Setomaa parishes has been noted down in the period 1963–1986.
