Simulating the Paninian System of Sanskrit Grammar

The Ashtadhyayi of Panini (ca. 5th cent. B.C.) provides an elegant and compact description of Sanskrit language which remains unexcelled till today. It consists of some four thousand pithy rules, a lexicon of verbal roots together with a (partial) list of nominal stems. The rules (formulated in sutra style) describe Sanskrit, the object language, as well as the meta-language of description. The generative nature of the grammar, presented as a complex combinatorics of linguistic constituents, stimulates its computer simulation.

Under the guidance of Prof. Dr. Axel Michaels (Department of Classical Indology, University of Heidelberg), Anand Mishra developed a model for a computer representation of the Paninian system of sanskrit grammar. Based on this model, a database of grammatical components is prepared and using it the rules of Ashtadhyayi are simulated on computer. These simulated rules are then further employed for generation of morpho-syntactical components of the language. These generated components are stored in a p-subsequential automata which is then used to develop a lexicon on Paninian principles.
