The Aryabhusan School Dictionary, Marathi-English

FOREWORD

Public opinion as regards the medium of instruction in the secondary school course, has undergone a vast change within recent years and even the highest educational authorities now admit that the vernaculars should be more largely employed in the schools. Greater attention is bound to be devoted to translation from Marathi into English. The issue, therefore, of a Dictionary having a scope somewhat wider than the ordinary Dictionaries of this type in the market needs no special apology. Many new words that have now found permanent lodgment in the Marathi vocabulary have been incorporated in this book for the first time.
