1 Definition(s) from various sources:

Uktapratyukta (उक्तप्रत्युक्त).—One of the ten type of lāsyāṅga, or ‘elements of the gentle dance’;—In it there is speech and reply (i.e., the disco urse). It is caused by anger and favor and is based on words of insult and censure. It is employed with significant striking song. Abhinava explains ‘citragītārtha’ as ‘the meaning of the striking song’ (which is the composition of the dhruva song). In the nāṭyāyita, spoken of in chapter 22 of the Nāṭyaśāstra (the chapter called the Sāmānyābhinaya), there is the gestic ulation of the purport of the dhruva song. It is described there in relation to abhinaya (acting). Here it is stated as the theme of the lāsya, that is useful as part of the play. It also includes the technique of akāśabhāṣita, svagata and the asides (i.e., janāntika and apavārita), etc., used in the dramas.
