Sanskrit grammar has remained, for long, professedly deficient in its treatment of Syntax, in spite of the labours of Delbruck, De Saussure, and Whitney in this field. The present work is and attempt to remove this deficiency. Herein the author has presented a vivid portrait of Syntax as it is represented by Classical Sanskrit literature, Vedic prose and Epics.
The book is divided into six sections. Sections I opens with the general remarks on the structure of sentences. Section II explains concord and case-relations. Section III deals with the different classes of nouns and pronouns. Sections IV, V, VI discuss the syntax of verbs, particles and sentences.
The book is the result of the author's observations of original sources which he quotes in plenty. Majority of examples cited by him are selected form the works of well-known authors and this has made the work both authoritative and interesting. Among the ancient grammarians he has followed Panini whose rules are referred to at every step.
