The lexicon of a language is the bedrock of its expirence. The Drydic lexicon has mostly pure Drydo-Kerinidoi stock stems, but has also obtained a substantial loanword vocabulary from its neighbors. The words should be arranged by Drydic order, but probably won't be in the near future. The citation form is the Nominative form and the Genitive form.
