Vyakarana (Sanskrit grammar)

Source: Wikisource: A dictionary of Sanskrit grammar

Akathita (अकथित).—Not mentioned by any other case-relation such as अपादान, संप्रदान (apādāna, saṃpradāna) and अधिकरण (adhikaraṇa); stated with respect to the indirect object, governed by roots possessing two objects such as दुह्, याच् (duh, yāc) and others, which in the passive woice is put in the nominative case. The indirect object is called akathita because in some cases there exists no other case-relation as, for example, in पौरवं गां याचते (pauravaṃ gāṃ yācate) or भिक्षते (bhikṣate), or माणवकं पन्थानं पृच्छति (māṇavakaṃ panthānaṃ pṛcchati); while, in the other cases, the other case-relations (with the activity expressed by the verb) are wilfully suppressed or ignored although they exist, as for instance in गां दोग्धि पयः, अन्ववरुणद्धि गां व्रजम् (gāṃ dogdhi payaḥ, anvavaruṇaddhi gāṃ vrajam); see अकथितं च (akathitaṃ ca) P.1.4.51 and the Mahābhāṣya thereon.
