Ātisparśa (आतिस्पर्श).—Excess of contact, which to a certain extent spoils the pronunciation and leads to.a fault. अतिस्पर्श (atisparśa) is the same as दुःस्पर्श (duḥsparśa), the letter ळ (ḷa) being called दुःस्पृष्ट (duḥspṛṣṭa) on account of excess of contact. This excess of contact (अतिस्पर्श (atisparśa)) in the case of the utterance of the letter र् (r) results into a fault as it practically borders on stammering; cf. अतिस्पर्शो बर्बरता च रेफे (atisparśo barbaratā ca rephe), R. Pr. XIV. 26.(Source): Wikisource: A dictionary of Sanskrit grammar
