Description

Pre-Paninian Grammar is an analysis of the linguistic material gleaned from the Pre-Paninian works - the vast grammatical data spread over centuries from the Vedic period down to the time of Panini covering more than a millennium of ancient Indian thought. Grammatical facts reflected in the Padapathas, the Pratisakhyas and the Nirukta, the three milestones in Indian linguistics are discussed in minute detail.

The book is testimony to the years of painstaking research and the author’s indefatigable commitment to the search for truth.


The traditional Indian science of language forms an important chapter in the history of the development of Indian thought. It is, in fact, one of the major contributions to the world tradition of knowledge and learning. It has a long history of over three thousand years which begins with the beginning of civilization in this country. Some of the eminent scholars of the West have recognized the Indian science of language as the foremost science to have evolved in India.

Not only is this book an analysis of the linguistic material gleaned from the Pre-Paninian works, it epitomizes the vast grammatical data spread over centuries from the Vedic period down to the time of Panini covering more than a millennium of ancient Indian thought. Grammatical facts reflected in the Padapathas, the Pratisakhyas and the Nirukta, the three milestones in Indian linguistics, are discussed threadbare
