Pāṇini’s Sanskrit grammar: focus on Pāṇini’s description of accent
The Summer School in Pāṇinian Grammar is addressed not only to students interested in Sanskrit technical and commentary literature but also to students of Linguistics, in particular Historical Linguistics. In this course students will gain a grounding in the several sections of Pāṇini’s grammar through intensive reading sessions followed, in the afternoon, by a session of exercises that will allow students to get to grips with the Pāṇinian text and learn to handle it independently.
In each edition, the School offers an in-depth look at a specific topic; in this year’s programme the focus will be on Pāṇini’s account of accent in comparison with modern accounts of Vedic accent.
Due to the health situation, the course will take place (barring any changes) in mixed mode: in person (max. 10 people) and by streaming.
