Excerpt from Useful Sanskrit Nouns and Verbs: In English Letters

The grammars of Professors max-muller, Whitney, and Sir M. Monier-williams are open to the objection that beginners are compelled to pick out the transliterated forms from amongst the Devanagari, while advanced students are under the opposite difficulty: their atten tion, following the line of least resistance, is led away from the Devanagari forms to the English letters, and thus important differences are overlooked.
