The Student's Sanskrit-English Dictionary
The present Dictionary is designed to meet the long-felt need of the English knowing reader, who is interested in the study of classical as well as modern Sanskrit.
It covers a very large field-Epics such as the Ramayana and Mahabharata, Puranas and Upapuranas, Smrti and Niti literature, Darsanas or Systems of Philosophy, such as Nyaya, Vedanta, Mimamsa, Sankhya and Yoga, Grammar,Rhetoric, Poetry in all its branches, Dramatic and Narrative literature, Mathematics, Medicine, Botany, AstronomyMusic and other technical or scientific branches of learning. Thus it embraces all words occurring in the general post-Vedic literature. It includes most of the important terms in Grammar. It gives quotations and references to the peculiar and remarkable meaning of words, especially such as occur in books prescribed for study in the Indian and foreign universities. It also renders explanation of important technical terms occurring in different branches of sanskrit learning. To add to its usefulness, the work includes three appendices.
From my experience in teaching over a half century, I can attest to the popularity of Apte's dictionaries and their usefulness to students whose main interests lie in literary works and sastras such as treatises on vyakarana, nyaya, mimamsa, and alankara. I am happy, therefore, to see and welcome this new edition of The Student's Sanskrit-English Dictionary. - George Cardona in his Foreword
