Apūraṇī (अपूरणी):—[tatpurusha compound] f.

(-ṇī) The silk cotton tree (Bombax heptaphyllum). E. a compar. or explet. and pūraṇī. (A ludicrous and ungrammatical explanation which is given of this word, viz. ‘not fit for the woof’, is simply refuted by the circumstance that pūraṇī means the same as apūraṇī; the first part of the comp. is the explet. or compar. a which occurs in apaṭī, anikṣu, aneḍamūka, akupya and several other compounds.)

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.
