Vyakarana (Sanskrit grammar)

Source: Uṇādi-Sūtras In The Sanskrit Grammatical Tradition

Anuvṛtti (अनुवृत्ति).—One of the six devices which form the requisite qualifications of Sanskrit grammar;—Anuvṛtti is a repetition or recurrence of a word from the previous to the subsequent rule or rules, which is neccessary for the sake of intended interpretation. So far as the uṇādi-sūtras are concerned, the anuvṛtti is invariably present, permeating the whole uṇādi-pāṭha, to give a clear meaning of each and every sūtra.

Anuvṛtti (अनुवृत्ति).—Repetition or recurrence of a word from the previous to the subsequent rule or rules, which is necessary for the sake of the intended interpretation. The word is of common use in books on Pāṇini's grammar. This recurrence is generally continuous like the stream of a river (गङ्गास्रोतोवत् (gaṅgāsrotovat)); sometimes however, when it is not required in an intermediate rule, although it proceeds further, it is named मण्डूकप्लुत्यानुवृत्ति (maṇḍūkaplutyānuvṛtti). In rare cases it is taken backwards in a sūtra work from a subsequent rule to a previous rule when it is called अपकर्ष (apakarṣa).
