Hi Brendan,

Halbfass's India and Europe may be worth looking at. I'm sorry that I don't have my copy in my present location to verify whether or not this is really a good lead, but it's definitely something I would want to check in this context.

Dear Brendan,

I published a paper that touches upon the topic: “La linguistique indienne: perspectives européennes et indiennes.” Cahiers de l'ILSL 52 (Historiographie et épistémologie des sciences du langage: du passé vers le présent; ed. Ekaterina Velmezova), 2017, 27-63.


I hope your student will find something of interest in it.

Best wishes,

Dear colleagues and friends,

I have an undergraduate student interested in getting a better
understanding on the impact of the Indian grammatical tradition on 19th
century philology and early 20th century linguistics. I would be
grateful to receive some suggestions of books and article he, and I for
that matter, might read.

Best wishes,
