Importance of Sanskrit
The Sanskrit language also, like the literature collected in it, falls into two major divisions-
(1) The Vedic Sanskrit &
(2) The Classical Sanskrit.
Within the Vedic language itself, various stages of development can be found. After undergoing several changes the vedic language finally merged itself into the classical Sanskrit. Though there is much dissimilarity between the Vedic and Classical Sanskrit, the phonetic conditions are almost the same. As regards the difference, many old words are lost and new words have come in. Certain words have changed their meaning and new derivations have been introduced. Differences can be noticed in grammatical forms too
