Grammar and Prosody Home Page
Articles about Indian Prosody
Table of Contents
The documents in this section have been prepared to give a broad overview of Indian Prosody as it has developed through the ages; and to provide bibliographical information that may be useful to the student. Most of the documents consist of Appendices to other works, or small sections within a larger work, some of which are hard to find, and so it seemed useful to gather them together here. I hope to add more articles to this section as and when possible.
I have generally reformatted the documents to make them more readable, added in the metrical markings wherever necessary, and annotated the documents whenever it would help to clarify the text. Occasionally I have corrected the English, especially in Indian works on the subject. All such additions and corrections are placed in square brackets.
