Aṣṭādhyāyī of Pāṇini
Panini`s grammar of sanskrit written in the sixth century B.C., is the earlist linguistic description of the language and is the source and inspiration for the development of comparative philosophy and modern linguistics. The Astadhyayi remains the most correct and complete grammer ever written and is considered a model for all grammars. Simotra M. Katre`s expert translation fo the Astadhyayi is the first English translation of the work to use Roman transliteration for the sanskrit text. Not only scholars of sanskrit but also general linguists will find accessible this new presentation fo the classic work which relies letters, italics, and small capitals to visually present the operation of Panini`s metalinguistic technique.
