The Khwarezmian glossary—IV

  • D. N. MacKenzie

This fourth article brings us to the end of a preliminary survey of the main chapter (six-sevenths by length of what survives) of Das chwaresmische Sprach-material einer Handschrift derMuqaddimat al-adab’von Zamaxsari, as it is presented in the edition of Johannes Benzing. Notice is no longer taken of the underpointed spellings of words which have been met frequently before, of the type b'rwzd for p-, ǰrm for č-, etc., and in the first instance only the more debatable transliterations of the Xw. glosses are discussed. We take up the tale at Muq., 439, Benzing's p. 316.
