About this Item

The distinguishing of this classic dictionary rare: the space assigned to the etymology of words; the arrangement of words which are similarly spelt but differently derived into separate paragraphs according to their etymology; the indicating the postposition by means of which an indirectly transitive, or an intransitive verb governs its object, and the change of mmeaning which frequently takes place by the employment of different postpositions after a verb ( many verbs, in existing dictionaries, are given as transitive, thus leading one to suppose that they overn the accusative case, whereas they govern, it may be, the genitive, or the ablative, or the locative; e.g. gabza Karna is called a transitive verb, although it governs the locative); the admission of numerous words which do not find place in the literary language. This volume is an invaluable accessory for the scholars of classical Urdu and Hindi. Printed Pages: 1260. Bookseller Inventory # 47907
