Abstract:

Prakrit is the general term, under which are comprised the various dialects 
which appear to have arisen in India out of the corruption of the Sankrit. As the 
word is used by the grammarians, it signifies 'derived', thereby to denote its 
connection with the original Sanskrit. Later grammarians include many varieties 
under the name, but most of these are probably the subtil refinements of a alter 
age; as, the older the grammarian is, the fewer we find the dialects to be. The 
oldest, Vararuchi, has only treated of four - the Máháráshtrí, the Mágadhí, the 
Paisáchí, and the Śaurasení. Of these the first is considered by him as the 
most important.

Its grammar is given in the first nine sections of the 'Prákrita Prakáśa', the 
remaining three sections being severally devoted to the pecularities of the other 
three dialects (Re-edition; originally published 1868 in London; written in 
English).
