Lexica: Sanskrit, Tibetan and English

Lexica provides definitions from two Sanskrit-Tibetan word lists and a Sanskrit-English dictionary. Three lexical databases are currently available - the Mahāvyutpatti, Yogācārabhūmi and Monier-Williams Sanskrit-English Dictionary - and twelve search strategies.

The author would like to thank Dr Hoshu MITSUHARA and Tooru AIBA for allowing him to manipulate their electronic versions of the Mahāvyutpatti. He is also grateful to Drs Koitsu YOKOYAMA and Takayuki HIROSAWA for the original digital version of the Yogācārabhūmi. The Indica et Buddhica version of Monier-Williams Sanskrit-English Dictionary is possible due to the kindness of Dr Thomas MALTEN.
