And (अन्द्):—[adi-bhvādi-udātta-udāttet] r. 1st cl. par. (andatianāt-ānanda; see ant) To bind. (The Draviḍa provincialism of this radical is ant q. v. Comp. also īnt. The real occurence of this radical which is inflected in the Dhātuparāyaṇa of Hemachandra, as far as the forms given are concerned, but not in the Dhātuvṛtti of Mādhava who inflects ant q. v., is very doubtful. See the Preface.)

Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
