Elem Sanskrit & Ancient India

Elementary Sanskrit and Ancient India
In this course we will combine an introduction to the Sanskrit language with study of ancient India. Students will learn the structure of Sanskrit and basic grammar and will read simple texts that will be used to illustrate aspects of ancient Indian culture and history. Students will begin work in transliteration (Roman script), but students will move quickly to traditional devanagari script. The place of Sanskrit in historical/comparative linguistics will also be discussed.
