SUMMARYLeonard Bloomfield's synchronic grammatical works were heavily nfluenced by the sixth century B.C. Indian grammarian Panini. Word for-mation, compounds, suppletion, zero, form-classes, and generality and specificity in Bloomfield's Language, Eastern Ojibwa, and The Menomini Language are correlated with their counterparts in Panini's grammar of Sanskrit. Selections from a manuscript of Bloomfield's translation and annotation of the Kasika, a traditional Sanskrit work on Panini's grammar, provide concrete evidence for the influence of Panini on Bloomfield.RESUMELes etudes grammaticales synchroniques de Leonard Bloomfield etaient profondement influencees par le grammairien indien Panini, du sixieme siecle avant Jesus-Christ. Dans le present article on etablit un parallelisme entre le traitement de la formation de mots, des mots composes, de la suppletion, du concept 'zero', des classes de mots et de la distinction entre generalité et specificite dans Language, Eastern Ojibwa et The Meno-mini Language de Bloomfield et leurs equivalents dans la grammaire sans-crite de Panini. On donne ici des citations d'un manuscrit de Bloomfield contenant une traduction et une annotation de la Kdsika, ouvrage Sanscrit traditionnel sur la grammaire de Panini, et on prouve par la l'influence qu'a eu Panini sur Bloomfield.
