IN this little vocabulary, 5184 English words are represented by less than 3000 Hindustani colloquial ones. With the exception of one or two useful technical terms, the list contains only the common words of the everyday speech of the illiterate. These words have not been merely selected from the dictionaries. Each word has been subjected to many tests; and an attempt, which it is hoped will be considered successful, has been made to give the exact meaning or application of each word, and to show how its common synonyms differ in their shades of meaning. It is believed that a careful study of this vocabulary will materially help the student to use the right word in the right place. Considerations of expense required the employment of the Roman character alone. This, however, should prove no stumbling-block.
