Ayurveda (science of life)
Āpya (आप्य) refers to “belonging to water”, “consisting of water”, or, “living in water”. The term is used throughout Āyurvedic literature such as the Suśruta-saṃhitā and the Caraka-saṃhitā.Source: Wisdom Library: Āyurveda and botany
Āpya (आप्य) or Āpyakṣetra refers to “watery land” and represents one of the five classifications of “land” (kṣetra), as defined in the first chapter (ānūpādi-varga) of the 13th-century Raj Nighantu or Rājanighaṇṭu (an Ayurvedic encyclopedia). Accordingly, “a land full of stones looking like half-moon and white lotuses, which is full or rivers and rivulets is called āpya or watery land”.
Substances (dravya) pertaining to Āpya-kṣetra are known as Āpyadravya—These dravyas are kaṭu (pungent), kaṣāya (astringent) ad cool in nature, hence allay the increased pitta-doṣa.Source: WorldCat: Rāj nighaṇṭu

Traditional practice of Āyurveda in ancient India dates back to at least the first millenium BC. Literature is commonly written in Sanskrit using various poetic metres.
Vyakarana (Sanskrit grammar)
Āpya (आप्य).—To be obtained by an activity: (the same as vyāpya). The term is used in connection with the object of a verb which is to be obtained by the verbal activity. The word आप्य (āpya) is found used in the sense of Karman or object in 8 the grammars of Jainendra, Śākaṭāyana, Cāndra and Hemacandra; cf. Cāndra II I. 43; Jainendra I. 2.119; Śāk.IV.3.120: Hem. III.3.31. Hence, the term साप्य (sāpya) is used for a transitive root in these grammars.Source: Wikisource: A dictionary of Sanskrit grammar
Vyakarana (व्याकरण, vyākaraṇa) refers to Sanskrit grammar and represents one of the six additional sciences (vedanga) to be studied along with the Vedas. Vyakarana concerns itself with the rules of Sanskrit grammar and linguistic analysis in order to establish the correct context of words and sentences.
