The article also shares a table in which how 10 known lexicographical works treated the vulgar, slang, corrupted and rustic Urdu words. The article explained these words as well. There was no same standard among Urdu lexicographers to include these words in their works. The social background of the lexicographers led to varying standards for these words.
