Vyakarana (Sanskrit grammar)
Saṃhitāpāṭha (संहितापाठ).—The running text or the original text of the four Vedas as originally composed. This text, which was the original one, was split up into its constituent padas or separate words by ancient sages शौनक, आत्रेय (śaunaka, ātreya) and others,with a view to facilitating the understanding of it, and consequently to preserving it in the oral tradition.The original was called मूलप्रकृति (mūlaprakṛti) of which the पदपाठ (padapāṭha) and the क्रमपाठ (kramapāṭha) which were comparatively older than the other artificial recitations such as the जटापाठ, घनपाठ (jaṭāpāṭha, ghanapāṭha) and others, are found mentioned in the Pratisakhya works.Source: Wikisource: A dictionary of Sanskrit grammar

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family. 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.
