<p style='text-align: justify;'> This manuscript contains an anonymous <i>Avacūri</i> on the 8th chapter of the <i>Śabdānuśāsanalaghuvrṭṭi</i> by the 12th century polymath Hemacandra . The 8th chapter (<i>adhyāya</i>) is divided in four sections (<i>pāda</i>) dealing with phonetics, adverb, noun, verb and Prakrit dialects like Śaurasenī, Māghadhī, Paiśācī, Cūlikāpaiśācikā and Apabhraṃśa. The four stanzas after the final rubric beginning with <i>āsīd viśāṃ patir</i> on <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage();return false;'>folio 32r6</a> are printed in Pischel 1877: p. V. At the end is a <i>praśasti</i> in eleven stanzas given. It informs us about the layman Aulāsiṃha of the Prāgvaṭa family. From his wife, Meghādevī , he had one son Pethā who married Prīmaladevī . She gave birth to three sons: Maṇḍana , Karmaṇa and Dharma . Their wifes were respectively Harṣū , Lalakū and Āsū . Prīmaladevī commissioned this manuscript, after her husband had listened to the teaching of Somasundarasūri , who was a pontiff of the Tapāgaccha. Somasundarasūri was born in V.S.1430 and became <i>sūri</i> in V.S. 1457. The counsellor Nārada copied this text in the year V.S. 1472. </p>
