Classical Sanskrit came before prakrit ?
In the early forms section, it states that Sauraseni Prakrit descended from classical sanskrit. This is wrong. Prakrit came before Sanskrit , not the other way around. This is a bogus classification. Please refer to this wiki article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_languages_by_first_written_accounts Bodhiupasaka (talk) 16:18, 29 March 2020 (UTC)
- The article you linked is about first written records known for a language; not about the order in which languages appeared.
- Sanskrit was confirmed earlier than prakrits. That said, I am certain that prakrits existed in parallel and most folks across the Subcontinent did not use the highly codified language of literature and law in their daily lives. — kashmīrī TALK 17:32, 29 March 2020 (UTC)
- Bodhiupasaka, Nobody says that it came before. Once again, please pay close attention to the wording: written records of Sanskrit are earlier than written records of prakrits. — kashmīrī TALK 18:23, 30 March 2020 (UTC)
Don't you find it odd that a language that was 'synthesised' by Panini for writing down scriptures has a recorded attestation date that is much later than a language like Prakrit that was first spoken and not written ? Bodhiupasaka (talk) 17:48, 30 March 2020 (UTC)
- Odd? No. This is long-standing scholarly consensus, check e.g. Colin P. Masica (1991), The Indo-Aryan Languages, Cambridge University Press, pp. 50–55. If you have a WP:reliable source that says otherwise, present it here, so we can see if turns out to be useful to improve the article. Otherwise, WP:NOTFORUM. –Austronesier (talk) 18:18, 30 March 2020 (UTC)
Are we still going to pretend that Classical Sanskrit came before Sauraseni Prakrit ? It makes no chronological sense. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bodhiupasaka (talk • contribs) 15:45, 3 April 2020 (UTC)
- @Bodhiupasaka: Lol where does anyone claim that? Vedic Sanskrit certainly came earlier, and that is Sanskrit too. AryamanA (talk, contribs) 22:54, 29 May 2020 (UTC)
I did not say that Vedic Sanskrit came before Prakrit. I said classical sanskrit did not come before Prakrit. It is not a claim, genius. It is a fact . Read the first link I have given in the thread. Think before you type. Panini , the creator of Classical Sanskrit never referred to language of Vedas as vedic Sanskrit. He referred to it in his Ashtadyayi as Chandas or metrical language. Sanskrit means refined language while prakrit means source or old language, and that too ironically in Sanskrit. Bodhiupasaka (talk) 06:32, 30 May 2020 (UTC)
