MIMAMSA CONTRIBUTION TO LANGUAGE STUDIES (Calicut University 
Sanskrit Series No. 2)
MIMAMSA CONTRIBUTION TO LANGUAGE STUDIES (Calicut University Sanskrit Series No. 2)
Description
Preface:

It is a matter of great pleasure for the Department of Sanskrit to publish the first 'Prof. M. S. Menon Endowment Lectures' in a book form. This is the second book in the 'Calicut University Sanskrit Series', the first being The Catalogue of Manuscripts.

The Department of Sanskrit started in 1977, Prof. M. S. Menon, a renowned scholar-critic and the founder head of the Department, retired from service on 30th September 1985. Then his colleagues and students decided to raise a fund to start a series of annual endowment lectures on different topics of Sanskrit language and literature and Indian Philosophy. With the encouragement showered o them by the University authorities, especially the then Vice-Chancellor M. R. N. Jayachandran, 'Prof. M. S. Menon Endowment' was instituted soon. Dr. K. Kunjunni Raja, Hon. Director of the Adyar Library and Research Centre, was invited to deliver the first 'Prof. M. S. Menon Endowment Lectures' on ''Mimamsa Contribution to Language Studies'' on 14th, 15th and 16th October 1986.

The various systems of Indian Philosophy have made substantial contribution to Linguistics and allied disciplines. Of these systems Mimamsa stands in the forefront. Dr. Raja had already discussed many points in regard to this in his Indian Theories of Meaning and Language of Poetry and in a good number of research papers. In this booklet he deals with the contribution of Mimamsa to language studies in a succinct manner. The definition of the word 'Mimamsa' is discussed first. This is followed by a brief survey of important Mimamsa works, along with the main theories of interpretations according to that philosophy. Then Dr. Raja gives us a general idea of the attitude of Mimamsa towards language and Kumarilabhatta's observations on foreign loan words in Sanskrit. Theories of sentence meaning put forward by eminent Mimamsakas are discussed in some detail in the last section of the work.

I am profoundly grateful to the University authorities for allotting sufficient fund for publishing these endowment lectures. Thanks are due to Dr. Kunjunni Raja for delivering the lectures and giving permission for including this work in the Calicut University Sanskrit Series. I am thankful to my colleagues in the Department of Sanskrit for their active co-operation in all the works of the Department, especially for the help extended by them in conducting the Endowment Lectures and printing this booklet.

Testimonials
Your books arrived in good order and I am very pleased.
Christine, the Netherlands
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...

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA

I am very very happy with the statue and very grateful to your company for providing access to such lovely works of art. Thank you for providing truly beautiful objects and for providing great service. All the very best to you,
