From Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sanskrit 110427

Sanskrit (Skt: संस्कृतम् saṃskṛtam /sə̃skɹ̩t̪əm/, originally संस्कृता वाक् saṃskṛtā vāk, "refined speech"), is a historical Indo-Aryan language and the primary liturgical language of Hinduism, Jainism and Buddhism. (Wiki-note01).[note 1] Today, it is listed as one of the 22 scheduled languages of India[2] and is an official language of the state of Uttarakhand.[3]  

UKT: The orthography of "Sanskrit" is noteworthy. The onset-consonant used in this disyllabic word is a thibilant, /θ/, and not a sibilant such as /s/ nor /ʃ/. Yet the pronunciation is sibilant. I wonder whether this confusion is yet another confusion since the days of proto-Indo-European (PIE) languages comparable to centum-satem isogloss. See Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centum-Satem_isogloss 110428. We must not forget that the four languages of BEPS are used by peoples with very distinct facial features which may also reflect very different neurological features. What is the Pali used in Myanmar? Is it the same as the Pali used in Sri Lanka? If it were not it, would be better to apply a different name to it such as Magadhi-Myanmar! After all it was the language used by Tib-Bur speaker-group to which Gautama Buddha obviously belonged based on the place in which he was born, and places where he had preached. - UKT110428.

isogloss n. 1. A geographic boundary line delimiting the area in which a given linguistic feature occurs. -- AHTD

Classical Sanskrit is the standard register as laid out in the grammar of Pāṇini, around the 4th century BCE. Its position in the cultures of Greater India is akin to that of Latin and Greek in Europe and it has significantly influenced most modern languages of the Indian subcontinent, particularly in India, Pakistan and Nepal.[4]

The pre-Classical form of Sanskrit is known as Vedic Sanskrit, with the language of the Rigveda being the oldest and most archaic stage preserved, its oldest core dating back to as early as 1500 BCE.[5] This qualifies Rigvedic Sanskrit as one of the oldest attestations of any Indo-Iranian language, and one of the earliest attested members of the Indo-European language family [IE - different from Tib-Bur (Tibeto-Burman)], the family which includes English and most European languages.[6]

The corpus of Sanskrit literature encompasses a rich tradition of poetry and drama as well as scientific, technical, philosophical and Hindu religious texts. Sanskrit continues to be widely used as a ceremonial language in Hindu religious rituals in the forms of hymns and mantras. Spoken Sanskrit is still in use in a few traditional institutions in India and there are many attempts at revival.


The Sanskrit verbal adjective sáṃskṛta- may be translated as "put together, constructed, well or completely formed; refined, adorned, highly elaborated". It is derived from the root saṃ-skar- "to put together, compose, arrange, prepare",[7] where saṃ- "together" (as English same) and (s)kar- "do, make".

The term in the generic meaning of "made ready, prepared, completed, finished" is found in the Rigveda. Also in Vedic Sanskrit, as nominalized neuter saṃskṛtám, it means "preparation, prepared place" and thus "ritual enclosure, place for a sacrifice".

As a term for "refined or elaborated speech" the adjective appears only in Epic and Classical Sanskrit, in the Manusmriti and in the Mahabharata. The language referred to as saṃskṛta "the cultured language" has by definition always been a "sacred" and "sophisticated" language, used for religious and learned discourse in ancient India, and contrasted with the languages spoken by the people, prākṛta- "natural, artless, normal, ordinary".
