mleccha Occurs in the śatapatha Brāhmaṇa in the sense of a barbarian in speech. The Brahmin is there forbidden to use barbarian speech. The example given of such speech is he Ίανο, explained by Sāyana as he ’rayah, ‘ ho, foes.’ If this is correct—the Kāṇva recension has a different reading—the barbarians referred to were Aryan speakers, though not speakers of Sanskrit, but of a Prākṛta form of speech. Cf Vāc.
