Description

This book is a convenient quick-reference guide to the phonology and grammar of Classic Sanskrit , for use by university students and others.

It presents, in easily read tables, essential reference information such as the rules of sandhi, the declensional and conjugational paradigms, and the principal parts of major verbs. Tables make up about two-thirds of the book. The remainder is text, with guidance on how to use the tables and explanations of the relevant grammatical principles. Romanised transcription is use throughout, and some innovative modes of description and presentation are adopted. Particular features are a table of the principal parts of 432 verbs, and a set of three indexes - to verb stems verb endings and noun endings.

This manual will be found a valuable, 'user-friendly' companion to existing grammars, such as Whitney's. Though primarily intended for beginning and intermediate students, it will be of use to scholars working with Sanskrit at any level.
