This volume includes Sanskrit text of individual sutras with the transliteration, word-boundaries, indication of inflectional endings and formation of compounds. Each sutra is also furnished with anuvrtti, vrtti, examples, detailed explanatory notes and complete derivational history of examples, cited by the Kasikavrtti. Explanatory notes are presented to facilitate proper understanding of individual sutras, especially in view of their formulation, interpretation, application and relative placement in the grammar. An attempt has been made to sort out and explain pertinent issues, as raised and discussed by major commentaries particularly the Mahabhasya of Patanjali. Derivational details of examples, unlike earlier volumes, are furnished under explanatory notes of individual rules. This completes the author's six-volume study on the Astadhyayi of Panini.
