The problem of the authorship of the Pañcapādī-uṇādi-sūtras has been analyzed and satisfactorily settled on the basis of the use of the device of prakṛti and pratyaya in these sūtras. It tells us how the etymological tendencies in the Brāhmaṇas culminated in the Nirukta and how it contributed to the making of the uṇādi sūtras. Yāska himself alludes to this heated controversy over the origin of nouns.It has been presented here in the form of a hypothesis that Pāṇini adopted a reconciliatory approach and himself composed the uṇādi sūtras as an appendix to his grammar proper.

The textual variations which have crept into the uṇādi sūtras because of their lax nature, have been studied and an attempt has been made to determine the correct reading of the major variations with the help of various commentaries. An exhaustive list of the variations has also been given.

The post-Pāṇinian uṇādi sūtras which have their own significance and which have their origin in the Pāṇinian uṇādi sūtras have been accorded a proper treatment. It has also been shown that it is the Pāṇinian uṇādi sūtras which have influenced the succeedng uṇādi sūtras to a great extent.
