The present Dictionary is a pratical exercise in word-compilation to facilitate the study of the Sanskrit language. Based on Webster's complete English dictionary, it includes general terms of all sciences, and such technical terms as could be duly represented by Sanskrit equivalents actually existing in that language. Besides the general vocabulary, quotations from the works of famous authors have been inserted to render the connotation of a word easily intelligible. It is also designed to help scholars translate any passage from English into Sanskrit.
