This text contains a complete list of the words, with Gurmukhi spellings, romanized transcriptions, English definitions, frequency counts and etymologies, in the hymns of Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikhism. Academically, the principal purpose of the glossary is to further the integration of the study of the sacred language of the Sikhs with the mainstream of Indo-Aryan philology and linguistics. A clearer picture emerges of a complex literary artefact made up of elements from varieties of Old Punjabi and Western Hindi, with loans from Persian, Prakrit and Sanskrit. This edition contains material on the non-Sanskritic vocabulary of the later Sikh gurus.
