Vyakarana (Sanskrit grammar)
Vākyakāra (वाक्यकार).—A term used for a writer who composes a work in pithy, brief assertions in the manner of Sutras, such as the Varttikas. The term is found used in Bhartrhari's Mahabhasyadipika where by contrast with the term Bhasyakara it possibly refers to the varttikakara Katyayana; cf. एषा भाष्यकारस्य कल्पना न वाक्यकारस्य (eṣā bhāṣyakārasya kalpanā na vākyakārasya) Bhartrhari Mahabhasyadipika. cf. also Nagesa's statement वाक्यकारो वार्तिकमारभते (vākyakāro vārtikamārabhate); cf. also चुलुम्पादयो वाक्यकारीया (culumpādayo vākyakārīyā); Madhaviya Dhatuvrtti.
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.

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.
