Hanneder © Springer Science+Business Media B.V. 2008 This review could be very short: the volume under discussion fills a dire need in Sanskrit didactics, is the only work of its kind and can be recommended, or indeed, is required reading for everyone dealing with Sanskrit, simply because a large portion of Sanskrit literature is in the form of commentaries. Nevertheless I shall try to be more specific. The volume, besides dealing in much detail with the Sanskrit used in commentaries, is something of a bridge between a Western grammar of Sanskrit, as for instance that of Whitney, and the indigenous commentatorial tradition, which presupposes a knowledge of P¯an . inian grammar, In- dian lexicography and so forth. The book is therefore by necessity guided by San- skritic terms and definitions, as visible in the chapter division, which follows the Indian definition of the “services” of a commentary.
