Sanskrit – The Mother of All Languages
Considered to be the oldest language in human history, Sanskrit is the progenitor and inspiration for virtually every language spoken in India. This article traces the origins and history of this venerable language.
Sanskrit is considered to be a key element in the Indo-Aryan language superfamily and holds the rank of a classical language, together with other languages such as Classical Greek, Latin, Persian, Arabic Hebrew, Chinese and Tamil. The conferring of the title of a “classical” follows the fulfillment of certain requirements from the language in question :
Its origins must be established as having occurred over a long time ago.
It should possess an independent tradition that arose mostly on its own and not as an offshoot of another tradition.
It must have a large and extremely rich body of ancient literature.
Sanskrit fulfils all these requirements with ease, having a tradition going back at least 3,000 years and is the language in which every ancient Hindu text, devotional or otherwise, is written in.
The word “samskrata”, in the strictest sense, means “purified, consecrated, sanctified”. Sanskrit, usually referred to as “Samskrata Vak”, would mean a “refined language”. Sanskrit has, by definition, always been considered to have been a language chiefly employed for religious and scientific discourse and is assumed to have contrasted with the languages spoken by the people. The oldest surviving example of the tabulations of the rules of Sanskrit grammar is Panini’s “Astadhyavi” (literally translating to “Eight-Chapter Grammar”) dated to have been written around the 5th century BC. The “Astadhyavi” is essentially a prescriptive set of grammarian principles, which defines (rather than describes) the correct usage of Sanskrit. However, it is replete with descriptive sections, chiefly to account for those Vedic forms of Sanskrit which had already phase out by the time Panini wrote the book.
It has always been believed that Sanskrit was created and then refined over many generations, typically over more than a thousand years, until it was considered complete and perfect in all respects. Sanskrit was not conceived as a specific language set apart from other languages, but as a particularly refined manner of speaking. This could analogized to the same relation that “Standard” English bears with respect to dialects of English spoken around the world. The current form of the language is believed to have evolved out of the earlier “Vedic” form of Sanskrit and certain scholars often classify Vedic Sanskrit and Classical Sanskrit as separate languages. However, both forms of Sanskrit bear remarkable degrees of similarity with each other, with points of difference occurring mostly in the areas of phonology, vocabulary, and grammar.
