Vyākaraṇa holds an uncontested place of honour in Indology, and Pāṇini's grammar in particular is a basic source in argumentation not only among Pāṇinīyas but also for students of Indian literature and śāstras regardless of their particular areas of concentration. In this volume are published thirteen contributions presented in the Vyākaraṇa section of the twelfth World Sanskrit Conference. The papers represent a considerable breadth of interest.
Most of the studies concern technical aspects of Pāṇinian grammar. Several papers deal with facets of Pāṇini's metalinguistic usage and four studies with points concerning derivational procedures and particular sūtras related to them. Two papers concentrate on questions of syntax and two other scholars treat subjects of primarily historical interest. [Verlagsinformation]
