A short practical grammar based on the large Vedic grammar by the same author. It sets forth the subject with more completeness as whole, though in a comparatively brief form than the larger work.This book if to a great extent based on the large Vedic Grammar of the same author. The linguistic material of the Rigveda, being more ancient, extensive, and authentic than that of the other Samhitas, all of which borrow largely from it, is however, considerably supplemented from the other samhitas. The term Vedic is here used to comprehend not only the metrical language of the hymns, but also the prose of the Brahamanas and of the Brahmana - like portions of the Atharvaveda and of various recessions of the Yajurveda.
