Description

About The Book

Words of Indian origin have been insinuating themselves into English eversince the end of the reign of Elizabeth and the beginning of that of King James, when such terms as calico, chintz, and gingham had long passed into English language and literature. Such foreign words started being used quite frequently 185 years ago when, soon after the middle of the last century the number of English men in Indian services, civil and military expanded with the great acquisition of dominion then made by the East India Company.

Hobson-Jobson in original compilation was intended to deal with all that class of words which, not in general pertaining to the technicalities of administration, recur in the daily intercourse of English in India, either as expressing ideas really not provided for by English language or supposed by speakers to express something not capable of just denotation by any English term. The work, in the long course of its compilation underwent some modification and enlargement of scope which has been presented to readers.

Those who have studied the pages of Hobson-Jobson have agreed in classing it as unique among similar works of reference, a volume which combines interest and amusement with instruction, in a manner which few other dictionaries if any, have done.

About The Author

William Crooke was a British orientalist and a key figure in the study and documentation of Anglo-Indian folklore. He joined the Indian Civil Service. While an administrator in India, he found abundant material for his researches in the ancient civilizations of the country. He found ample time to write much on the people of India, their religions, beliefs and customs.

Although Crooke was a gifted administrator, his career in the ICS lasted only twenty-five years. He returned to England in 1910 and was chosen to be the President of the Anthropological Section of the British Association and later became the editor of its journal, Folk-lore, in 1915.

Crooke received various honours later in life, including degrees from the universities of Oxford and Dublin and a fellowship of the British Academy.
