Yuvan (युवन्).—lit. young person; masculine; the word is given as a technical term in grammar in the sense of one, who is the son of the grandson or his descendant, provided his father is alive; the term is also applied to a nephew, brother, or a paternal relative of the grandson or his descendant, provided his elderly relative, if not his his father, is alive; it is also applied to the grandson, in case respect is to be shown to him: cf. P. IV. 1.163-167. The affixes prescribed in the sense of युवन् (yuvan) are always applied to a word ending with a tad. affix applied to it in the sense of an offspring (अपत्य (apatya)) or grandson (गोत्र (gotra)), in spite of the ruling that in the sense of grandson or his descendant (गोत्र (gotra)), one affix only इञ् (iñ) or अण् (aṇ) or the like is added to the base; e.g. गार्ग्यस्यापत्यं गार्ग्यायणः, दाक्षेरपत्यं दाक्षाय्णः गार्ग्ये जीवति तस्य भ्राता सपिण्डो वा गाम्यार्यणः तत्रभवान् गार्ग्यः (gārgyasyāpatyaṃ gārgyāyaṇaḥ, dākṣerapatyaṃ dākṣāyṇaḥ gārgye jīvati tasya bhrātā sapiṇḍo vā gāmyāryaṇaḥ tatrabhavān gārgyaḥ); गार्ग्यायणो वा (gārgyāyaṇo vā).
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.

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.
