Nyaya (school of philosophy)
Vākyavṛtti (वाक्यवृत्ति) or Tarkasaṃgrahavyākhyā is a commentary on the Tarkasaṃgraha which is ascribed to Meruśāstrī Goḍvole.—The Tarkasaṃgraha of Annaṃbhaṭṭa is a Sanskrit treatise dealing with the ancient Indian system of logic and reasoning. It’s language is easily understandable and is meant primarily to unlock the doors of the twin-darśana of Nyāya-Vaiśeṣika. There are about twenty five commentaries [viz., the Vākya-vṛtti] both traditional and modern on this treatise which undoubtedly establishes the importance of Tarkasaṃgraha.
Nyaya (न्याय, nyaya) refers to a school of Hindu philosophy (astika), drawing its subject-matter from the Upanishads. The Nyaya philosophy is known for its theories on logic, methodology and epistemology, however, it is closely related with Vaisheshika in terms of metaphysics.

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.
