La grammaire de PāKini: quand la conscience linguistique d’un grammairien devient celle de toute une communauté

Abstract:The oldest known Sanskrit grammar, the Aṣṭādhyāyī of Pāṇini, described by Leonard Bloomfield as “one of the greatest monuments of human intelligence”, is one of the most well-known reference grammar. Its descriptive characteristic, its completeness linked to its conciseness, the absence of philosophical intrusion, etc. account for its role as a “model” grammar. The Aṣṭādhyāyī also constitutes a reference because of the language it describes: the eternal, the sacred Sanskrit language. This paper reviews the main reasons – qualities of the grammar itself and qualities of the described language – which explain why this grammar has become a “reference”.
