An Avesta Grammar in Comparison With Sanskrit, Vol. 1 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from An Avesta Grammar in Comparison With Sanskrit, Vol. 1The present Grammar is a work of no pretensions; it is offered as a small contribution toward advancing the Avesta cause. It is written in part fulfilment of a design formed when I first began to study the Avesta and became deeply interested in the true value and importance of that monument of antiquity.The end for which the book is intended would perhaps have been better accomplished, however, if the work had been a mere grammatical sketch. This was ray first design; and it may at another time be carried out. But as the work grew under my hands, it seemed desirable to enlarge it somewhat further, and to embody additional material which for reference might be serviceable to the general philologist, not to the specialist alone. The linguist may thus find in it useful matter and fresh illustrations, especially in the new readings from Geldner's edition if the Avesta texts.No attempt, on the other hand, has been made to secure absolute completeness. Numerous minor points have been purposely omitted. These may perhaps later be taken up in a more extended work including also the Old Persian by the side of the Avesta and the Sanskrit.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
