Subject: Marathi Language: A Dictionary of Old Marathi by Tulpule & Feldhaus

the late S. G. Tulpule and Anne Feldhaus

(South Asia Research)

Marathi is the official language of Maharashtra state in India. Old
Marathi is the "classical" written form of the language as it appears
in the abundant literature and inscriptions dating from around 1000 to
1350 B.C.E. This dictionary, the only one of its kind, is based on all
known inscriptions and literary sources from the Old Marathi
period. For each word, it offers a transliteration, an abbreviation
indicating the grammatical category, an indication of etymology (where
known), the attested meaning (with variants), and a citation or
citations illustrating the use of the word in Old Marathi sources.
