Recent Research in Paninian Studies
- +

The present volume is a continuation of the bibliography and study presented in Panini, A Survey of Research, first published in the Netherlands (The Hague: Mouton & Co., 1976), subsequently published in India (Delhi: Motilal Banarsidass, 1980) and reprinted in 1997. The basic format adopted for the first survey is observed here: a bibliography of major work done since 1975, including materials which came to the author's knowledge up to December of 1997, is followed by his appraisal of this work with extensive references to primary sources which are the bases of scholarly discussions and notes.

About the Author(s)

George Cardona is a Professor (emeritus) of Linguistics at the University of Pennsylvania. He is the author of several works on Sanskrit grammar (vyakarana), principally in the Paninian tradition, on the history of Indo-Aryan languages, and Gujarati.
