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.

It's very useful. However, I would like to see not only the entries in Sanskrit in Devanagari script (Skt-Dev), but also the English transliteration in IAST. It will be very useful for my BEPS (Burmese-English-Pali-Sanskrit spoken languages in Myanmar-IPA-Devanagari scripts) interlanguage study.
