Overview

Müller's Sanskrit Grammar for Beginners is a classic text which offers the English-speaking reader a simple introduction to this most important of Indo-European languages. This edition contains a chapter on syntax and an appendix on classical Sanskrit metres.

As Sir William Jones remarked way back in 1786, 'The Sanskrit language, whatever be its antiquity, is of a wonderful structure; more perfect than Greek, more copious than Latin, and more exquisitely refined than either, yet bearing to both of them a stronger affinity, both in the roots of verbs and the forms of grammar, than could possibly have been produced by accident; so strong indeed, that no philologer could examine them all three without believing them to have sprung form some common source.'

Sir Friedrich Max Müller was the first Professor of Comparative Philology at the University of Oxford.
