In the first place I must express my gratitude to Kh. M.Y. Taing, who continues to guide and patronize my research activities ever since I joined the literary school. The compiler is indebted to every book he ever read and every person he ever knew. From these latter he would like to select for particular acknowledgement, Prof. Dr. J. C. Sharma, Dy. Director, CIIL Mysore, Iqbal Azeem Choudhary, Shahbaaz Rajourvi, Qaisar Din , Hafiz ul Rehman and Dr. Javed Rahi.
It is with great reverence that I take the opportunity to express my gratitude to my teacher Prof. M. Y. Kohli for inspiring and constant guidance, constructive criticism, and suggestions in carrying out this project.
I can't but express my deep gratitude to my family members and loved ones who have been a constant source of inspiration and encouragement and to the best of my belief none else has sacrificed more for this project than my own wife and children.
I wish to thank all my little patients and their parents who, belonging to different geographical areas acted as natural surveyors for original Gojri vocabulary over the years.
It is a pleasurable duty for me to thank, Mr. Shabir, Mr. Sadiq Iqbal, and Javed Iqbal for their technical support and selfless help during compilation and computation besides title designing.
Lastly and most importantly 'Thanks God', I have done it!
