Dear Professor Paturi,
If I may direct you to my own book: Deshpande-Sanskrit & Prakrit -
Sociolinguistic Issues (Book MLBD 1993). This book discusses many of the
questions that you have raised in your message. With best wishes,

> When did the convention of treating Prakrits as 'languages' and not as
> dialects begin?
> Was there such an attitude of 'languages' not 'dialects' towards Prakrits
> in Sanskrit or Prakrit sources of the ancient or medieval period?
> Is there a work dealing with this issue?
> Thanks in advance for any references in this direction.
