From the Jacket:

Basic Principles of Indian Philosophy of Language is a concordance of the theories of Sabdapramana or philosophy of language in Indian tradition. An analytic approach has been made on the theories available in Paninian, Nyaya-Vaisesika, Purvamimamsa and Vedanta schools to show the consistency of the discourse made by traditional philosophers who claim themselves to be astika or Vedacentric. Attempts also have been made to establish that the traditional Indian theories of language are undoubtedly relevant for solving some problems raised in modern philosophy of language.
