About The Book

For Indian grammarians as well as for Western scholars Prakrit represents an importanlage in the development of Indo-Aryan. The Prakrit languages are since long the subject of graamitiunt descriptions composed for various purposes, which range from religious motivation to the more secon Prakrit in plays and poetry. The book "Three Prakrit Grammars" highlights the works of grammarians, Märkandeya, Puruşottamadeva and Ramasarman. Each of them composed in Sanskrit between the 12th and 17th century. The authors belonged all to the Eastern School Pa grammar. The mutual influence between the grammarians is clear from the order of their grammatical rules and from their choice to incorporate many illustrative examples from existing plays.

The book offers an introduction on grammatical studies in the Indian history and a description of the various Prakrits. A short biography of the authors in question completes the introduction. The chapters of the Prakrit languages Pracya, Avanti, Mägadhi and Paisacī are translated and analyzed, in order to compare the similarities and differences between the styles and content of the three Prakrit grammars.
