Aus The Kama Sutra of Vatsyayana:

Man should study the Kama Sutra and the arts and sciences subordinate thereto, in addition to the study of the arts and sciences contained in Dharma and Artha. Even young maids should study this Kama Sutra along with its arts and sciences before marriage, and after it they should continue to do so with the consent of their husbands. […]

The following are the arts to be studied, together with the Kama Sutra:— […]

51   Knowledge of dictionaries and vocabularies. […]

Damit steht das Wissen um Wörterbücher auf einer Ebene mit dem Spielen auf mit Wasser gefüllten Gläsern (Punkt 12), mit Magie und Zauberei (Punkt 21), mit der Herstellung von Erfrischungsgetränken oder Cocktails (Punkt 24) oder der Herstellung von Vögeln aus Garn (Punkt 26) — immerhin!
