Description

To know something about where words come from enriches our appreciation of a language; and to discover patterns of connectivity between different languages adds greatly to our understanding of cultural history. The fact that Hindi ‘comes from’ Sanskrit is clear to all, but awareness of the historical connectivity between Hindi and English is less widely disseminated.
