Sanscrit and English Analogues: Proceedings, APS (Vol. 7, No. 63, 1860)
Pliny E. Chase (au)
Text of a paper prepared in 1858. The author states, “Whatever value may be attached to the following vocabulary must belong to it in virtue of its adaptedness to the wants of the comparative etymologist. It is a list, not of roots, but of analogues; not of primitive germs from which English words are derived in a line of direct descent, but of similar forms in which similar ideas have been clothed by different members of one human family. It is not to be expected that the points of resemblance should strike all alike, or that all should agree as to the relative value of different portions of the lit, but it is proper that the compiler should indicate his own estimate of the comparisons which are merely accidental, as well as of those which he considers most striking.”
