CHAPTER I. THE ALPHABET. § I. SANSKRIT is properly written with the Devanragari alphabet; but the Bengali, Grantha, Telugu, and other modern Indian alphabets are commonly employed for writing Sanskrit in their respective provinces. Note-Devanagar( means the Nagar( of the gods, or, possibly, of the Br~hmBJl9. A more eurrent style of writing, used by Hindus in 1111 common transaclions where Hindi is the language employed, is called simply Nagart. Why the alphabet should have been called lI'dgart, is unknown. If derived from nagara, eity, it might mean the o.rt of writing as first practised in cities. (PaJ]. IV. 2, 128.) No authority has yet been adduced from any ancient author for the employment of the word Devan/igart. In the Lalita-vis/ora (a life of Buddha, translated from Sanskrit into Chinese 76 A. D.), where a list of alphabets is given, the DevanQgart is not mentioned, unless it be intended by the Deva alphabet. (See History of Ancient Sanskrit Literature, p. 518.) A

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from A Sanskrit Grammar for Beginners: In Devanagari and Roman Letters Throughout The present grammar, which is chiefly intended for beginners, is believed to contain all the information that a student of Sanskrit is likely to want, during the first two or three years of his reading. Rules referring to the language of the Vedas have been entirely excluded, for it is not desirable that the difficulties of that ancient dialect should be approached by any one who has not fully mastered the grammar of the ordinary Sanskrit such as it was fixed by Panini and his successors. All allusions to cognate forms in Greek, Latin, or Gothic, have likewise been suppressed, because, however interesting and useful to the advanced student, they are apt. to deprive the beginner of that clear and firm grasp of the grammatical system peculiar to the language of ancient India, which alone can form a solid foundation for the study both of Sanskrit and of Comparative Philology. The two principal objects which I have kept in view while com-posing this grammar, have been clearness and correctness. With regard to clearness, my chief model has been the grammar of Bopp; with regard to correctness, the grammar of Colebrooke. If I may hope, without presumption, to have simplified a few of the intricacies of Sanskrit grammar which were but partially cleared up by Bopp, Benfey, Flecchia, and others, I can hardly flatter myself to have reached, with regard to correctness, the high standard of Colebrooke s great, though unfinished work. I can only say in self-defence, that it is far more difficult to be correct on every minute point, if one endeavours to re-arrange, as I have done, the materials collected by Panini, and to adapt them to the grammatical system current in Europe, than if one follows so closely as Colebrooke, the system of native grammarians, and adopts nearly the whole of their technical terminology.
