The Practical Sanskrit-English Dictionary

Vaman Shivram Apte (Author)
Synopsis IA Student, while reading Sanskrit, generally expects that the Dictionary which he uses will give appropriate equivalents for such words and compound expressions as may have peculiar meanings or sheds of meaning in particular passages. He desires to know not only that a particular word has so many senses, but that it has this or that sense in a particular passage of a book, so that he may determine any particular meaning of a word in a certain passage by seeing and comparing how it is used else-where by same writer or by other writers in different works. This dictionary includes all words occurring in the general post-Vedic literature, such as Epics, Puranas, Samirti literature, Law books, Shadadarsanas, Poetry, Tantra, Dramas, Mathematics, Medicine, Astronomy, Music and such other technical or scientific branches of learning. It also gives most of the principal Vedic words of senses of words. Another noticeable feature of the Dictionary is that gives full explanations of the more important technical terms particularly in Nyaya, Alankara, Vedanta, Grammar and Dramaturgy, with quotations in Sanskrit wherever necessary. To add to the usefulness of the Dictionary three appendices have been provided. The first is on Sanskrit prosody. The second appendic gives the dates, writings etc. of some of the important Sanskrit writers. The third appendix gives the most important names in the ancient Geography of India.
