Since the time of the Upanishads, the Indian tradition of semantic elucidation known as nirvacana analysis has been a powerful tool in the interpretation of Sanskrit texts. By drawing on the appropriate literature and deploying the model provided by the tradition itself, the author explains how it was used and why it became so significant. The book will be an important reference tool for students of Sanskrit and Indian studies, as well as to those in the field of indigenous Indian linguistics.Contents1. An outline of strategies2.
