|Abstract. In this article multi-order exact solutions of a generalized shallow water wave equation are sought in addition to those belonging to a class of nonlinear systems such as the KdV, modified KdV, Boussinesq, Klein-Gordon and modified Benjamin-Bona-Mahony equation. A modified version of a generalized Lame equation is employed within a perturbative framework and the solutions are identified order byorder in terms of Jacobi elliptic functions. The multi-order exact solutions turn out to be new and hold the key feature that they are expressible in terms of an auxiliary function f in a generic way. For appropriate choices of f the previous results reported in the literature are recovered.
