The Ashtadhyayi of Panini: 2 Volumes
The Ashtadhyayi of Panini: 2 Volumes
Description

From the Jacket:

Panini's Ashtadhyayi represents the first attempt in the history of the world to describe and analyze the components of a language on scientific lines. It has not only been universally acclaimed as the first and foremost specimen of Descriptive Grammar but has also been the linguist engaged in describing languages of different regions.

To understand Sanskrit language, and especially that part of it which embodies the highest aspirations of ancient Aryan people, viz., the Brahmanas, Samhitas, Upanisads, it is absolutely necessary to have a complete knowledge of the grammar elaborated by Panini. Being a masterpiece of reasoning and artistic arrangement its study is bound to cultivate intellectual powers. Western scholars have described it as a wonderful specimen or a notable manifestation of Indian intelligence.

This book is an English translation of Ashtadhyayi in two volumes and has won a unique position in the world of scholarship.

 

About the Book

Panini’s Ashtadhyayi represents the first attempt in the history of the world to describe and analyse the components of a language on scientific lines. It has not only been universally acclaimed as the first and foremost specimen of Descriptive Grammar but has also been a chief source of inspiration for the linguist engaged in describing languages of different regions.

Being a masterpiece of reasoning and artistic arrangement its study is bound to cultivate intellectual powers. Western scholars have described it as a wonderful manifestation of Indian intelligence.

This book is an English translation of Ashtadhyayi in two volumes and has won a unique position in the world of scholarship.

Panini’s grammar of Sanskrit, written in the sixth century B.C., is the earliest linguistic description of the language and is the source and inspiration for the development of comparative philology and modern linguistics. The Astadhyayi remains the most correct and complete grammar ever written and is considered a model for all grammars. This is the first English translation of the work to use Roman transliteration for the Sanskrit text. Not only scholars of Sanskrit but also general linguists will find accessible this new presentation of the classic work, which relies on the Roman alphabet’s upper-and lower-case letters, italics, and small capitals to visually present the operation of Panini’s metalinguistic technique. This work also consistently indicates the manner in which the ellipsis created by the formulation of Panini’s strings of aphoristic rules is to be filled in by using his own metalinguistic procedures. Also included are helpful appendices and lists.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
