Beschreibung:

The etymology for is phrase is at Muharram chant of Ya! Husain Ya! Hasan. This extremely interesting work gives the India origin of words that have found their way into the English language. It is a thick 1021 page book, and is full of references for the progress of Indian words from the original to the corrupted words and phrases, many of which are in the British English even today. The notices of travelers to India, from the ancient times (Herodotus is mentioned often) till the late 19th century makes this book a valuable source book for the various notices it gives of India through the ages. One example to illustrate the scope is the word ?Rupee? : it came from ?Rupaiya?, which came from ?Rupa?, which, in turn is the word for Silver. This indispensable book is a reprint of the 1903 edition. Printed Pages: 1068. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 68283
