CLST 024. Sanskrit Grammar

LING 024  
This course is designed to help students appreciate the grammar system of Sanskrit as codified by the great grammarian Pânini (5th century BCE), whose system has been called the "greatest monument to human intelligence" (G. Cardona). In this course, students will first be exposed to basic features of the Sanskrit language, followed by a study of the grammar system of Pânini, and, by the end of the semester, readings in Sanskrit. This course is open to all students interested in learning Sanskrit. No prior knowledge is necessary.  It is also open to students who took CLST 023 in Fall 2018, as a continuation of the first class, but following a different parallel stream of learning Sanskrit. This course, taken with CLST 023 Introduction to Sanskrit, fulfills the language requirement.
