Indian Grammars, Philology and History: Papers of the 12th World Sanskrit Conference, Volume 4

George Cardona (Author) Madhav M. Deshpande (Author)

Vyakarana holds an uncontested place of honour in Indology, and Panini's grammar in particular is a basic source in argumentation not only among Paniniyas but also for students of Indian literature and sastras regardless of their particular areas of concentration. In this volume are published thirteen contributions presented in the Vyakarana section of the twelfth World Sanskrit Conference. The papers represent a considerable breadth of interest.

Most of the studies concern technical aspects of Paninian grammar. Several papers deal with facets of Panini's metalinguistic usage and four studies with points concerning derivational procedures and particular sutras related to them. Two papers concentrate on questions of syntax and two other scholars treat subjects of primarily historical interest.
