Yāt (यात्).—[, Lefm. in LV 62.12 (prose), evidently supposed to mean since (Vedic yāt, assumed by Pischel 427 as base for Prakrit jā, which others derive from Sanskrit yāvat). But no ms. reads yāt; some yā, others omit the word (probably with orig. text) or have other variants. Such a Pktism, and a dubious one at that, can hardly be assumed in the prose of LV.]

context information

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.
