Now back in print, F. Max Muller's classic survey of India's ancient literary language first appeared in 1866. It comprises a thorough introduction to the basic features of classical Sanskrit, as codified in Panini's grammar circa 400 B.C. The first chapter introduces the Devanagari alphabet with a comprehensive pronunciation guide. Subsequent sections cover topics including syntax, declension patterns, and verb classes. Throughout the text, all examples appear both in Devanagari script and in Roman transliteration.
