This book presents all information related to Vedic Sanskrit and Comparative Philology in very clear terms being largely guided by the authorís own experience at teaching at the Dacca and Calcutta Universities. At present in India the mediaeval commentaries are taught in the name of the Vedas and hardly ant attention is paid to the texts themselves. The students thus, the author believes, go away with the idea that the Vedic Rsis were either ignorant of grammar or did not care to follow the rules. This boo shows how much more complex than Paniniís was the grammar followed by the Rsis, and how much we have to depend on the evidence of other cognate languages for an adequate comprehension of the forms and structure of the Vedic language. The students of Comparative Philology will find in this book a dependable guide to the science through the medium of the Sanskrit language.Printed Pages: 173.
