May 16, Fiona rated it really liked it Shelves: Hardly concise and presupposes knowledge of linguistic terms beyond what textbooks often require a student to know. However, I would not recommend this as a volume for individual study unless you are very confident; works brilliantly alongside more modern text books, though.
I studied this alongside Egenes and Killingley- excellent combination. Oct 22, Gary Donnelly rated it really liked it Shelves: I am seeing progress with this book, but I have been using this in conjunction with to a lesser extent the Maurer Sanskrit textbooks – both have their uses but if you intend to ‘learn’ Sanskrit in any meaningful sense then I think it is best to use the books in conjunction with a Sanskrit teacher.
Others have noted the issues re misprints there are a lot! This may seem a minor gripe, but for beginners it really does make life rather difficult. I also found that Coulson addressed the cases of address rather haphazardly, doing half a job in the appendices rather than spending sufficient time on them in tbe main body of text; this might be because he assumes knowledge of other Indo-European languages, specifically of Latin.
For us younger students, this is an assumption too far though the book was published in the 70s, I think. Coulson also spends a lot of time talking about grammatical features and paradigms that are largely irrelevant to students like me who are reading Sanskrit in order to study Indian philosophy – not everybody is a grammarian!
Overall, the book is helpful and it has proved valuable in my making rapid progress with Sanskrit, but I yougself that this progress has come in conjunction with regular meetings with a PhD supervisor fluent in Sanskrit who can address things omitted from the book.
Still, it is definitely worth perusal by any budding student of Sanskrit.
