Śabdānuśāsana (शब्दानुशासन).—lit. science of grammar dealing with the formation of words, their accents, and use in a sentence. The word is used in connection with standard works on grammar which are complete and self-sufficient in all the abovementioned features. Patanjali has begun his Mahabhasya with the words अथ शब्दानुशासनम् (atha śabdānuśāsanam) referring possibly to the vast number of Varttikas on the Sutras of Panini, and hence the term शब्दानुशासन (śabdānuśāsana) according to him means a treatise on the science of grammar made up of the rules of Panini with the explanatory and critical varttikas written by Katyayana and other Varttikakaras.The word शब्दानुशासन (śabdānuśāsana) later on, became synonymons with Vyakarana and it was given as a title to their treatises by later grammarians, or was applied to the authoritative treatise which introduced a system of grammar, similar to that of Panini. Hemacandra's famous treatise, named सिद्धहैमचन्द्र (siddhahaimacandra) by the author,came to be known as हैमशब्दानुशासन (haimaśabdānuśāsana). Similarly the works on grammar written by पाल्यकीर्तिशाकटायन (pālyakīrtiśākaṭāyana) and देवनन्दिन् (devanandin) were called शाकटायनशब्दानुशासन (śākaṭāyanaśabdānuśāsana) and जैनेन्द्र- (jainendra-)' शब्दानुशासन (śabdānuśāsana) respectively.
