Title: Dictionary of Khotan Saka

Description:

Note: Manufactured on demand: supplied direct from the printer

New Edition

The Cambridge University Press published (1945–1967) in six volumes
Professor Bailey's transcriptions of Saka manuscripts found in Sin Kiang and
Kansu (of the ancient kingdom of Khotan). They are central to any study of
Old Iranian and the Iranian dialects; and they are also important for further
understanding of the religious tradition in the sacred Avesta of the
Zoroastrians, and for the history of the peoples of Central Asia generally.
This 1979 dictionary represents the fulfillment of a plan formed in 1934 which
required first the editing and transcription of the manuscripts, and then the
slow elucidation of the whole corpus of texts. It contains a linguistic
analysis and translation of all the Iranian words used in the texts. It is the
necessary key to the understanding of the texts, to the mastery of the
language itself, and to the linking of Khotan Saka into the Indo-European
linguistic tradition.
