Some consider Nāgeśabhaṭṭa to be the last great grammarian in the Pāṇinian school. Nāgeśabhaṭṭa was a pupil of Haridīkṣita, the grandson of Bhaṭṭojidīkṣita. Nāgeśabhaṭṭa's students include Vaidyanāthapāyaguṇḍa. Nāgeśabhaṭṭa was a prolific author, having composed many works both in grammar (vyākaraṇa) and other fields. Nāgeśabhaṭṭa's grammatical works include the following (here divided in three main areas). 1. Technical grammar/prakriyā: Bṛhacchabdenduśekhara, Laghuśabdenduśekhara; Laghuśabdaratna (believed by some to be authored by Nāgeśabhaṭṭa and attributed by Nāgeśabhaṭṭa to his teacher Haridīkṣita, the author of the Bṛhacchabdaratna); Mahābhāṣyapradīpoddyota; Mahābhāṣyapratyākhyānasaṃgraha; Viṣamapadavyākhyā. 2. Philosophy of grammar/language: Vaiyākaraṇasiddhāntamañjūṣā, Vaiyākaraṇasiddhāntalaghumañjūṣā, Vaiyākaraṇasiddhāntaparamalaghumañjūṣā; Sphoṭavāda. 3.
