Vyakarana (Sanskrit grammar)Source: Wikisource: A dictionary of Sanskrit grammar
Ram (रम्).—Augment र (ra) inserted after the vowel अ (a) of the root भ्रस्ज् (bhrasj), when the letter र् (r) which is already present in भ्ररुज् (bhraruj) (before अ) and the penultimate स् (s) are dropped; the result is that the word भर्ज् (bharj), in short, becomes substituted in the place of भ्रस्ज्ः (bhrasjḥ) cf. भ्रस्जो रोपधयो रमन्यतरस्याम् (bhrasjo ropadhayo ramanyatarasyām) P.VI. 4.47, and भ्रस्जो रोपधयोर्लोप आगमो रम् विधीयते (bhrasjo ropadhayorlopa āgamo ram vidhīyate) as Bharadvajiya Varttika thereon.
Vyakarana (व्याकरण, vyākaraṇa) refers to Sanskrit grammar and represents one of the six additional sciences (vedanga) to be studied along with the Vedas. Vyakarana concerns itself with the rules of Sanskrit grammar and linguistic analysis in order to establish the correct context of words and sentences.
