विज्ञान और कंप्यूटर की समर्थ भाषा , श्री नारायण प्रसादजी का यह शोधपरक लेख संस्कृत की वैज्ञानिक विशिष्टताओं को ही नहीं प्रस्तुत करता है अपितु संस्कृत जैसी शुध्द वैज्ञानिक भाषा को लेकर तथाकथित बुध्दिजीवियों द्वारा किए जा रहे छद्म प्रचार की भी कलई खोलता है। hindimedia.in/

Response : The specific "plan" is to create technical terminology using Sanskrit words and grammar rules. Raghuvir had made such campaign. Many others have attempted to create and standardize such terminologies and there are some dictionaries.

Learning how to create the words is not the problem, it is relatively easy!

The problem is how to get the created words established as standard terminology.
Remember the word for density from school? density = ghanataa = daarDhya!

Thus, the use of the word determines their success. You don't expect scientists from different part of India talking and thinking in Sanskrit.

It is more efficient to just adopt the technical words from other languages as given and start using them. If some Sanskrit words become popular and catch on, so be it. (For instance the word guNa from Sanskrit grammar is used by Linguists, but they have enhanced its meaning. They also make words like "gunation"- process of the guna transformation!) Languages grow and intermingle, that is their beauty! (A)
