This work aims to examine the way in which errors in Modern Sanskrit usage are viewed by traditional Sanskrit scholarship. The work is a part of a project undertaken by us to edit, annotate and discuss the three main modern works in this regard, viz., Vagvyavaharadarsa and Sabdapasabdaviveka both by Pandit Charudev Shastri and Suddhikaumudi by Dr. Janardan Hegde. All these three works put together, give us a collection of more than 1000 sentences that are deemed erroneous by the authors. The aim is to classify all these data under different heads and present them in the form of tables like the ones added to this work in form of the Appendices. While listing erroneous sentences, the authors of these works also discuss the causes of errors which are very important to us. The methodology in analysing these works relies mainly in comprehending the discussions which explain the errors and to fathom the reasoning involved. The idea is to analyse these reasonings and arguments in free and independent manner as far as possible. For the purpose of the present work, we focus only on one of the three texts mentioned above, viz., the Vagvyavaharadarsa.
