About the Book:

This is a short practical grammar which would do for the Vedic language what the Sanskrit Grammar for Beginners<-i> does for the classical language.<-p>

The present book is to a great extent based on the large vedic Grammar of the same author. The linguistic material of the Rigveda, being more ancient, extensive, and authentic than that of the other Samhitas, all of which borrow largely from it, is, however, considerably supplemented from the other samhitas. The term vedic is here used to comprehend not only the metrical language of the hymns, but also the prose of the Brahmanas and of the Brahmana - like portions of the Atharvaveda and of various recensions of the Yajurveda.<-p>

In short, the present work, therefore, constitutes a supplement to, as well as an abridgement of the vedic Grammar thus in reality setting forth the subject with more completeness as a whole, though in a comparatively brief form, than the larger work.<-p>

About the Author:

Macdonell, Arthur Anthony (b. 1854. d. 1930) had his education at Oxford and won the Taylorian Scholarship in Germany (1876), the Davis Scholarship (1877) and the Boden Sanskrit Scholarship (1878). He obtained a doctorate degree of the Leipzig University.<-p>

In 1888, Macdonell was appointed deputy to Sir Monier Williams, the Boden Professor of Sanskrit and keeper of Indian Institute. Upon that scholar?s death in 1899, Macdonell was appointed his successor in both these offices, and also to a fellowship at Balliol College. Retiring in 1926, Macdonell received the title of Emeritus Professor.<-p>

Macdonell made two visits to India. The first (1907-08) led to the acquisition of a large collection of Sanskrit manuscripts. The second visit (1922-23) was for the purpose of delivering a lecture on comparative religion. Macdonell was foremost a Vedic scholar and he made the most important contributions. Macdonell lived in Oxford after his retirement in 1926 till his death.<-p>
