Anna Pytlowany on a project on Hindi Lexicography at Uppsala University

Anna Pytlowany, whose PhD supervisors are Decaan Fred Weerman and Dr. Otto Zwartjes, from Spaanse Taal en Cultuur, is currently working on a project “Hindi Lexicography and the Cosmopolitan Cultural Encounter between Europe and India around 1700” at Uppsala University (Sweden) to digitize older linguistic documentation. She is preparing a digital edition of an early 18th-century vocabulary of Hindustani, French and Latin.

The primary goal of the project is to produce a digital online dictionary (Latin-Hindustani-French) on the basis of the unpublished ‘Thesaurus Linguae Indianae’ by François-Marie de Tours (BNF, Indien 840). This dictionary will be a starting point for an extended open repository of early Hindustani word lists and vocabularies produced before the foundation of Fort William College in Kolkata (1800).
