The Sanskrit Language presents a systematic and comprehensive historical account of the developments in phonology and morphology. This is the only book in English which treats the structure of the Sanskrit language in its relation to the other Indo-European languages and throws light on the significance of the discovery of Sanskrit. It is this discovery that contributed to the study of the comparative philology of the Indo-European languages and eventually the whole science of modern linguistics. Besides drawing on the works of Brugmann and Wackernagel, Professor Burrow incorporates in this book material from Hittite and taking into account various verbal constructions as found in Hittite, he relates the perfect form of Sanskrit to it. The profound influence that the Dravidian languages had on the structure of the Sanskrit language has also been presented lucidly and with a balanced perspective. In a nutshell, the present work can be called, without exaggeration, a pioneering endeavour in the field of linguistics and Indology.

Paulinus a S. Bartholomaeo's Dissertatio historico-critica in linguam Samscrdamicam (1790) serves as an introduction to his Sidharubam, the first Sanskrit grammar published in Europe. The Dissertatio is also important for another reason: it is concerned with speculations about the nature and origin of Sanskrit and the other Indian Languages. It raises questions about their relation to each other and to languages outside India. It bears witness to the fact that Paulinus was on of those few who heralded the era of comparative philology long before its official consecration. In addition, it offers an opportunity to study the range of working instruments available to Indic scholarship at the end of the 18th century. This volume contains a fac simile edition of the Latin original, an English translation, an introductory article, and an index of sources.

This book has the rare distinction of being both an introductorybook and a new ground-breaking study. It is an introductorybook because the reader gets an accurate overview ofthe language, and it is also a ground-breaking study becauseFilliozat s approach harmonizes two different and complementarystands that often have been at war: the Western historicaland comparative approach and the indigenous pa!Çitatradition. Sanskrit is described here from these two points ofview: what the native speakers knew and felt about theirlanguage, and what the foreign scholars discovered in theirhistorical and comparative quest.

India's Sanskrit language is oldest living language. According to NASA report Sanskrit is most suitable for computer use. A language of very ancient period and supposed to be given by god, also known as language of god, could not be improved. Sanskrit alphabet is most scientific compared to haphazard Roman alphabet. Grammarian Panini of Sanskrit language is considered greatest grammarian. His grammar is a kind of natural history of the Sanskrit language. Great historian Will Durand said Sanskrit is the mother of all European languages. Another scholar said that Sanskrit is the original source of all European languages of the present day. Another French scholar said that the classical language of India is the oldest and most systematic language in the world. A Garman scholar who founded the science of linguistics said that once Sanskrit was the language of the world. Even today in India prayers are done in Sanskrit language. Almost all the mottos of all universities and government of India are in Sanskrit. All the languages of the world have traces of Sanskrit language. Like English, once Sanskrit was a world language.
