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”.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
