Sanskrit Manual

Author: Roderick S. Bucknell
Publisher: Motilal Banarsidass Publ.
ISBN: 8120811895
Release Date: 1994-01-01
Genre: Sanskrit language

This book is designed to serve as a convenient quick-reference guide to the grammar of Classical Sanskrit for the use of university students and others. It is not intended to be a complete grammar of the language. Rather, its purpose is to pre-sent, mainly in the form of easily read tables, essential reference information such as the rules of sandhi, the declensional and con-jugational paradigms, and the principal parts of major verbs. About two-thirds of the book consists of tables. The remainder is text, with advice on how to use the tables and explanations of the grammatical information has been abstracted, with substantial modification of the presentation, from existing Sanskrit grammars, especially those of Whitney, MacDonell, and Kale. An exception is the set of three indexes: Index to verb stems, Index to verb endings, and Index to noun endings(Tables 28-30). These probably have no counterpart elsewhere. The manual originated as a set of photocopied notes which was supplied, as a supplement to existing textbooks, to first and second year students of Sanskrit in the Department of Studies in Religion at the University of Queensland. Over a period of seven years those notes were progressively modified and expanded until they became the present fairly comprehensive reference work.
