Abstract

In the period around 1600, the Swiss humanist and lawyer Melchior Goldast von Haiminsfeld (1576/78–1635) focuses his scholarly work on the literature of the Middle Ages. His attention is particularly drawn to the most important medieval lyric manuscript in German, the Codex Manesse. Goldast makes extensive notes on the manuscript, quotes from it and edits parts of it, thus making it known to a wider public for the first time. Rather than an enthusiasm for the poetry of the Middle Ages, however, it is above all his interest in the politics of the day that motivates the Calvinist Goldast.

Abstract

The present work is a study of the Aṣṭādhyāyī of Pāṇini from a new perspective. It attempts to explore the Pāṇinian system of Sanskrit grammar from a formal point of view and investigate the possibilities of representing it in a logical, explicit and consistent manner. It puts forward an appropriate framework for such a representation. Differing from the formulation of Aṣṭādhyāyī, which is composed in an artificial yet natural language and is meant to be employed by individuals who are acquainted both with the Sanskrit language and the techniques of grammar, the present rendering aims for a non-verbal representation in terms of mathematical categories and logical relations which can be implemented in an algorithmic manner. The formal framework suggested in this work would facilitate adequate tools for postulating and evaluating hypotheses about the grammatical system. Moreover, it would furnish the basis for a computer implementation of the grammar. Both these aspects are objects of enquiry in the field of theoretical studies on Pāṇini as well as the emerging discipline of Sanskrit computational linguistics. This book takes on the ground-work in these areas.
