Studies in linguistics: First Edition "The achievements of P nini and the Indian grammarians, beginning nearly 2500 years ago, have never been fully appreciated by Western scholars partly because of the great technical difficulties presented by such an inquiry, and partly because relevant tutorial articles have been confined to obscure and inaccessible publications. his book makes available to linguists and Sanskritists a collection of the most important articles on the Sanskrit grammarians, and provides a connected historical outline of their activities. It covers studies and fragments ranging from early 7th-century accounts of the grammarian recorded by Buddhist pilgrims from China and Tibet, by Muslim travelers from the Near East, and by Christian missionaries to some of the best articles that have appeared during the last century and a half."
