- This article deals with the concept of language in Bhartŗ hari's 'Vā kyapadĪ ya' (VP). It suggests that Bhartŗ hari considered language not as a static counterpart to external reality, but as speech, i.e. dynamic process. This attitude correlates with Bhartŗ hari's perspectivist approach, and with the way he deals with udā haraņ as. The focus on the dynamic nature of language in VP may be helpful for the interpretation of the kā rikā s, as well as for the formulation of the basic principles of Indian linguistic philosophy.
