2004. - 47 p. The term script grammar refers to the behaviour pattern of the writing system of a given language. Languages which have written representations do not use a haphazard manner of storing the information within the system, but use a coherent pattern which is similar to the linguistic grammar of a given language. With the help of specialists (not necessarily linguist) who work in the area of the written representation of the language, the manner in which the shapes of the characters of the language and the representation of the conjunct forms is provided. In other words the Script Grammar deals with the surface structure of the language and tries to provide the best possible fit for shapes and their representation. Since this is a highly subjective issue, the shapes provided here are recommendations at the best and conform to the perception of the mandating body/evaluators who consensually arrive at the best possible fit which is acceptable to a majority of users. An example from the Devanāgarī script will make the above clear. Although Marathi and Nepali share the same script Devanāgarī, not only do they not share the same character inventory but in addition the representation of certain characters is different. Thus the Nepali /la/ is different from the Marathi /la/ in so far as the placement of the stem is concerned Nepali ऱMarathi ऱ. This ensures that the Script Grammar conforms to the language in question and provides the character shapes acceptable to a given user community. It should be noted that this does not mean monotony. The Marathi and Nepali /la/ can have a variety of forms once the intrinsic structure of the character is determined.
