Sanskrit Resources (sound files)

Nouns | Verbs | Verses | Exercises

These sound files contain traditional recitations of grammatical paradigms. Nominal declensions are listed according to their grammatical gender: feminine, masculine, or neuter. Within each gender nouns are listed according to the alphabetical order of their last sound. Pronouns are placed as a separate group and are labelled as such. The conjugations of verbs are listed according to their active and middle forms, and within those categories according to their class (1-10). A few extra verbs are listed in certain classes due to their frequent use and irregularity.
