Panini: His Description of Sanskrit (An Analytical study of the Astadhyayi)
Panini: His Description of Sanskrit (An Analytical study of the Astadhyayi)
Description
From the Jacket:

This is a fresh look at Panini's Grammar from the viewpoint of data analyst and resulting rule formations. The author has taken the view that Panini must be rediscovered by following the path of data analysis and explores Panini's technique and offers a fresh insight.

Languages play a very large role in modern technology. The subject matter of computer and intelligent machines requires a deep under standing of the language phenomenon. India has Panini to offer to the world in this respect and Dr. Singh is making him more palatable and fathomable as model for understanding the process of dismantling and reassembling the linguistic structures. His keen analysis of Panini's Grammatical device offers a glimmer of hope for those who would like to review the spirit of Panini rather than worship the ancient gem of human kind. It is high time and fresh and aggressive insight and idea are offered to explore Panini. Panini himself would be proud to see his work come back to life above and beyond the rote that preserved it through the ages.

About the Author:

Dr. Jag Deva Singh, taught Linguistics at Kurukshetra University, and was a Visiting Professor at Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio. He was Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Maharashi Dayananda University, Rohtak and Senior Research Fellow, International School of Dravidian Linguistics. Currently he is Chairman of Grammar Engine, Incorporated, Westerville, Ohio - an organization devoted to research in natural and computer languages.

He has already published A Structural Grammar of Bangru and Beginning Sanskrit and has contributed several research papers on Indian linguistics. At present he is engaged in working out Panini's views on language, his theory of linguistic analysis and technique of description.

Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
