The Sanskrit equivalent of sadda, i.e.,'sabda, is widely used in
grammatical and philogical treatises in the sense of word as form, in
contrast to artha (meaning). The great grammatical treatise of
Patanjali, the Mahaabhaa"sya, calls itself a 'sabdaanu'saasana
("instruction on 'sabda"). The Pali grammatical terminology borrows
heavily from its Sanskrit counterpart.
