Co. Published by Shree Somnath Sanskrit University (Shree Somnath Sanskrit University Shastragrantha Sr.; 2). Vaiyakaranasiddhantabhusana, also known as Vaiyakaranabhusana, is an authentic text in Paninian semantics. It is a commentary on the Vaiyakaranamatonmajjana compiled by the great grammarian Bhattoji Diksita (17 th c.), and is written by Kaundabhatta, the nephew of;Bhattoji. The main intention is to refute the objections raised by Naiyayikas and Mimamsakas on various aspects of Paninian semantics and to establish the grammarians' views on the subject. Vaiyakaranasiddhantabhusanasara, an abridged version of the Vaiyakaranabhusana, also written by Kaundabhatta, is the more famous text with more than ten commentaries written on it. But nobody has so far attempted to write a commentary on the Vaiyakaranabhusana and though the text has been published four times from different places, none of them can be treated as a critical edition. The Vaiyakaranabhusana is being published here with the Niranjani commentary by Pandit Ramyatna Shukla, and critical notes (Prakasa) by the editor. The edition itself is prepared taking a 17th c. manuscript as base, and comparing it with 40 other manuscripts from different parts of India, and with printed versions. The present volume contains the first part of the work and is devoted to the meaning of roots and verbal suffixes which is at its heart.;
