Apūpamaya (अपूपमय):—1. m.

(-yaḥ) Much cake, plenty of cake. 2. m. f. n.

(-yaḥ-yī-yam) Principally consisting of, having or containing much, cake. [Both meanings result from the different interpretation of the commentators on Pāṇ. V. 4. 21; in the first meaning the gender must be that of apūpa. Prauḍhamanor.: prathamāntātprakṛte dyotye pratyayaḥ . svārthikatvātprakṛtito liṅgam; but Bhaṭṭojid.'s opinion is at the same time, that with this first interpretation of the affix the word tat in the Sūtra of Pāṇini becomes meaningless: ‘asminpakṣe tadgrahaṇaṃ vyartham’, and he gets somewhat out of temper when he speaks of an interpretation like that of the Kāśikā which tries to make it plausible: (Kāśikā: taditi prathamā samarthavibhaktiḥ . prācuryeṇa prastutaṃ prakṛtam . taditi prathamā samarthātprakṛtopādhikerthe vartamānātsvārthe mayaṭpratyayo bhavati) viz. yattu prācoktaṃ taditi prathamā samarthātprācuryeṇa prastutamatretyarthe mayaṭ syāditi . yacca vyācakhyuḥ . prācuryeṇetyādipratyayārthaviśeṣaṇamiti . tatredaṃ vaktavyam . vācyārthatyāgānnyūnatā . adhikaraṇasya kriyāsākāṅkṣatvena tadadhyāhāre gauravaṃ ceti mūle doṣaḥ . ṭīkāyāṃ tu prakṛtyarthetivaktavye pratyayārthetyuktiḥ . rabhasakṛtā ākaraviruddhā cetyāstāṃ tāvat.] E. apūpa, taddh. aff. mayaṭ.

context information

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
