3) (According to a vaidik commentator also used in the adjective sense:) fit or able to draw a cart, as an epithet of a goat; but this explanation seems doubtful.—(The use of the femin. anaḍvāhī would be restricted, according to one authority, to the Vedas, while others do not make any distinction between this form and anaḍuhī. In Avyayībh. compounds, the compound terminating with anaḍuh assumes the samāsānta aff. ṭac (see anaḍuha) and in [bahuvrihi compound] compounds, the samāsānta aff. kap (see anaḍutka); in the latter, however, it may also retain its original form, with the following declension in the neuter: sing. anaḍut, du. anaḍuhī and plur. anaḍvāṃhi.) E. anas, with s changed to ḍ, and vah (from vah, kṛt aff. kvip) with samprasāraṇa of v; in the fem. with aff. ṅīṣ.
