He was also a scholar of Greek and Indian logic and philosophy and Sanskrit grammar. Staal was born in Amsterdam , the son of the architect Jan Frederik Staal , and studied mathematics, physics and philosophy at the University of Amsterdam. He continued with Indian philosophy and Sanskrit at Madras and Banaras. Chomsky himself has said that the first generative grammar in the modern sense was Panini's grammar. Remarkably, these early linguistic systems were codified orally, though writing was then used to develop them in some way. The formal basis for Panini's methods involved the use of "auxiliary" markers, rediscovered in the s by the logician Emil Post.
