Ātmanepada (आत्मनेपद).—A technical term for the affixes called तड् (taḍ) (त, आताम् (ta, ātām) etc.) and the affix आन (āna) (शानच्, चानश्, कानच् (śānac, cānaś, kānac)), called so possibly because, the fruit of the activity is such as generally goes to the agent (आत्मने (ātmane)) when these affixes are used.

General definition (in Hinduism)

[Atmanepada in Hinduism glossaries]

Ātmanepada, meaning "word for the self." The traditional definition is that the "fruit of action," meaning the result, goes to the one who acts. Hence, they are "self-serving" verbs, or verbs "for the self." We can think of the ātmanepada verbs as reflexive verbs since the result of the action, whatever it is, goes back to whatever acted in the first place.
