Sarasvatīkaṇṭhābharaṇa (सरस्वतीकण्ठाभरण).—Called also सरस्वतीसूत्र (sarasvatīsūtra), name of a voluminous grammar work ascribed to king Bhoja in the eleventh century. The grammar is based very closely on Panini's Astadhyayi, consisting of eight chapters or books. Although the affixes, the augments and the substitutes are much the same, the order of the Sutras is considerably changed. By the anxiety of the author to bring together, the necessary portions of the Ganapatha, the Unadiptha and the Paribhasas, which the author has included in his eight chapters, the book instead of being easy to understand, has lost the element of brevity and become tedious for reading. Hence it is that it is not studied widely. For details see pp. 392, 393 Vyakarana Mahabhasya Vol. VII. D. E. Society's edition.

Sarasvatīkaṇṭhābharaṇa (सरस्वतीकण्ठाभरण) (one work dealing with Poetics, another dealing with Grammar) refers to various works ascribed to King Bhoja, according to Bisheshwar Nath Reu.—King Bhoja of Dhārā, one of the greatest rulers of India, ruled  from 1018 to 1060 A.D. He was great in the art of Government and war, but still greater in the art of peace. He had earned immortal fame as a great patron of poets and men of letters and a mass of legends has grown about his name. He is reported to be the author of more than three dozen works [i.e., Sarasvatīkaṇṭhābharaṇa]. [...] Śrī Viśveśvara Nātha Reu has laboured very hard in his treatise on ‘Rājā Bhoja’ (publsihed by Hindustani Academy) in collecting all the available material on the subject to give an account of the life and works of Bhoja. He has given a list of the following thirty-four books ascribed to Rājā Bhoja of Dhārā [i.e., Sarasvatīkaṇṭhābharaṇa]

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