Dear Colleagues,

we should like to inform the members of this list that a cumulative
Sanskrit dictionary with the German title „Nachtragswörterbuch des
Sanskrit“ (NWS), the result of a joint project at the universities of Halle
and Marburg and funded by the DFG, is accessible as a trial version:


The new search tool lists lexicographical addenda from c. 170
dictionaries and glossaries, which postdate Böhtlingk's
"Sanskrit-Wörterbuch in kürzerer Fassung" (1879-89) as well as
R. Schmidts "Nachträge" (1928):


The search page provides a synoptic search in all three sources:


General information is provided here:


Basic usage is probably self-explanatory, but do use the button
"Help and useful hints" on the search page and the menu "Description".

Corrections and other feedback can be sent to nws at uzi.uni-halle.de.

We hope that the NWS will be of some use for Sanskritists.

Kind regards,

Walter Slaje (Halle) and Jürgen Hanneder (Marburg)

Ego ex animi mei sententia spondeo ac polliceor
studia humanitatis impigro labore culturum et provecturum
non sordidi lucri causa nec ad vanam captandam gloriam,
sed quo magis veritas propagetur et lux eius, qua salus
humani generis continetur, clarius effulgeat.
Vindobonae, die XXI. mensis Novembris MCMLXXXIII.
