The Language of the Kharosthi Documents from Chinese Turkestan by T. Burrow
Paperback: 146 pages
Publisher: Cambridge University Press (30 Jun 2011)
The documents discussed in this 1937 book were found by Sir Aurel Stein at the turn of the twentieth century. In this text, they were interpreted for the first time. Mr Burrow has identified the language in which they are written, and has succeeded in interpreting their meaning. He here presents a grammar of the language, with a full discussion of its peculiarities and its relation to other Indian languages.
