A Sanskrit-English Dictionary by Sir Monier Monier-Williams, Professor E. Leuman, Professor

By Sir Monier Monier-Williams, Professor E. Leuman, Professor C. Cappeller and other scholars

The 1st challenge humans appear to be having with this recognized dictionary is that the various more moderen reprints of the unique Clarendon Press version (especially the Indian ones) are bodily of very bad caliber: not just are they poorly revealed on inferior paper, yet in addition they include a shoddy binding that's simply unlikely to face as much as this type of dealing with a heavy dictionary will get. Books akin to this (and there are numerous being released this present day) appear to me nearly to were intentionally designed to self-destruct after minimum use.

The merely approach to this challenge isn't to shop for a later reprint within the first position. as an alternative, search for a used reproduction of the sooner UK-produced Clarendon Press variation. This was once well-printed on caliber paper, stitched in order that it opens flat with no the backbone cracking, and certain in a sturdy textile. while you are fortunate adequate to discover this sort of you'll be getting a true ebook that might be a excitement to address and may withstand decades of heavy use.

The moment challenge that a few humans run into is that the dictionary itself can, due to its association, be tricky to take advantage of. a good option to this challenge has been supplied through Charles Wikner in his 'A useful Sanskrit Introductory' (1996).

This is an excellent and intensely necessary 146-page Sanskrit educational in 15 classes which, along with educating Sanskrit pronunciation, Devanagari, and a few easy ideas, has additionally been designed, as Wikner says, "to raise the English-speaking pupil who understands not anything of Sanskrit to the extent the place he can intelligently [use] Monier-Williams' dictionary."

He explains that classes 12-14 "penetrate Monier-Williams' dictionary via its 4 degrees of alphabetical order, and recommend recommendations for locating tough words." After learning those 3 classes, clients should not have any additional hassle with the dictionary; in reality, it's going to develop into a true excitement to use.
