The Practical Sanskrit-English Dictionary

Vaman Shivaram Apte (Author)
Synopsis The Practical Sanskrit-English Dictionary has been undertaken to supply a want long felt by the student, of a complete and at the same time low-priced Sanskrit-English Dictionary. The main feature of this Dictionary is that it has aimed at being practical. With this view the author has added quotations and references to the peculiar and noteworthy senses of words, especially such as occur in works read by the student at school or college. To a student, especially a beginner, they are very useful, as they supply him with apt illustrations of the senses of words, and enable him to provide himself with a large stock of choice, idiomatic expressions which are so abundant in the language. Another noticeable feature of the Dictionary is that it gives full explanations of the more important technical terms, particularly in Nyaya, Alankara, Vedanta, Grammar and Dramaturgy, with quotations in Sanskrit wherever necessary. Similarly, striking phrases, some choice expressions and idioms or peculiar combinations of words, have been given under every word where necessary or possible. Mythological allusions in the case of all important personages have been briefly but clearly explained, so as to give the reader most of the facts connected with them. Some of the most common Nyayas or Maxims have been collected under the word Nyaya for easy reference. Three Appendices have also been added. The first is on Sanskrit Prosody. The second Appendix gives dates, writings etc. of some of the important Sanskrit writers. The third Appendix gives the most important names in the ancient Geography of India with identifications on the modern map wherever ascertained.
