Dear Peter,

> Buddhist Hybrid Sanskrit

the Sanskrit grammarian Kumāralāta uses ārṣa to refer to “a
grammatically irregular form of language employed by the Buddha”
(Seyfort Ruegg, 1998, review of SWTF, JAOS 118: 553; cf. von Hinüber,
2001, Das ältere Mittelindisch im Überblick, § 43).

Cheers,
Stefan
