Pāṇini, Variation, and Orthoepic Diaskeuasis


Kiparsky, Paul (2012). Pāṇini, Variation, and Orthoepic Diaskeuasis. Asiatische Studien / Études Asiatiques, 66(2):327-335.

Abstract

The Kāṇva redaction of the BĀU revises the text in the direction of a form of early Classical Sanskrit similar but not identical to that described in the Aṣṭādhyāyī. The fact that it also favors the variants introduced by vā in Pāṇini’s optional rules provides an independent piece of evidence for my proposal that vā in the Aṣṭādhyāyī means “preferably”.
