A new area of research.  The possibility of new research papers is endless
such as:
"Viral gender in sanskrit, a joint medical and linguistic study"
"Non-retroflexion, evidence of modern loan-words in sanskrit"
"Change and continuity in modern sanskrit discussion, कोरोना, करोना, कोरोण "
"Transmission of linguistic forms in sanskrit"
