It was only when I started relearning Sanskrit as an adult that I gradually became aware of the passage to linguistic form/space. Learning Sanskrit in school had been a gymnastics of mental memory – both acoustic and visual – mathematical tables of roots with endings – a series of woven patterns. Unlike Latin and Germanic languages, Sanskrit syntax is flexible. There is neither a fixed subject – verb- object nor redundant articles & prepositions. Instead there are roots with different prefixes and endings which give them verbal or noun case functions. Thus कृ kri = do/act/ verb, कृति kriti-creation noun. आकार /Aakaar –form.
What exactly are these linguistic architectures and how does that part of the brain conceptualize, think, organize, process and cognate. Further what is the relationship between sound and its graphic inscription. What is the relationship between speaking-writing-reading-thinking and memory. How does their relationship affect the evolution of language and its cultural evolution.
