Introduction:

Sanskrit is not just a scientific and natural Language but it menifests itself in the form of Art, Science, Maths, Music, Cultural, Yoga, Meditation and many more forms. The one which is introduced or produced in its perfect form is called Sanskrit. The word Sanskrit is formed from “sam + krit” where (sam) prefix means (samyak) ‘entirely’ or ‘wholly’ or ‘perfectly,’ and krit means ‘done.’ Sanskrit was first introduced by Brahma to the Sages of the celestial abodes and it is still the language of the celestial abode, so it is also called the Dev Vani.

The phonology (the speech sound) and morphology (the science of word formation) of the Sanskrit language is entirely different from all of the languages of the world. Some of the unique features of Sanskrit are:
1. The sound of each of the 36   consonants and the 16 vowels of Sanskrit are fixed and precise since the very   beginning. They were never changed, altered, improved or modified. All the   words of the Sanskrit language always had the same pronunciation as they have   today. There was no ‘sound shift,’ no change in the vowel system, and   no addition was ever made in the grammar of the Sanskrit in relation to the   formation of the words. The reason is its absolute perfection by its own   nature and formation, because it was the first language of the world.
2. The morphology of word formation is   unique and of its own kind where a word is formed from a tiny seed root   (called dhatu) in a precise grammatical order which has been the same   since the very beginning. Any number of desired words could be created   through its root words and the prefix and suffix system as detailed in the   Ashtadhyayi of Panini. Furthermore, 90 forms of each verb and 21 forms of   each noun or pronoun could be formed that could be used in any situation.
3. There has never been any kind, class  or nature of change in the science of Sanskrit grammar as seen in other   languages of the world as they passed through one stage to another.
4. The perfect form of the Vedic Sanskrit language had already existed thousands of years earlier even before   the infancy of the earliest prime languages of the world like Greek, Hebrew   and Latin etc.
5.

When a language is spoken by unqualified people the pronunciation of the word changes to some extent; and   when these words travel by word of mouth to another region of the land, with   the gap of some generations, it permanently changes its form and shape to   some extent. Just like the Sanskrit word matri, with a long ‘a’ and   soft ‘t,’ became mater in Greek and mother in English. The last   two words are called the ‘apbhransh’ of the original Sanskrit word ‘matri.’  

Such apbhranshas of Sanskrit words are found in all the languages   of the world and this situation itself proves that Sanskrit was the mother   language of the world.

Considering all the five points as explained above, it is quite   evident that Sanskrit is the source of all the languages of the world and not   a derivation of any language. As such, Sanskrit is the Divine mother language of the world.
