Aviravikanyāya (अविरविकन्याय).—A maxim mentioned by Patañjali in connection with the word आविक (āvika) where the taddhita affix ठक् (ṭhak) (इक (ika)), although prescribed after the word अवि (avi) in the sense of 'flesh of sheep' (अवेः मांसम् (aveḥ māṃsam)), is actually put always after the base अविक (avika) and never after अवि (avi). The maxim shows the actual application of an affix to something allied to, or similar to the base, and not to the actual base as is sometimes found in popular use cf. द्वयोः शब्दयोः समानार्थ-योरेकेन विग्रहोऽपरस्मादुत्पत्तिर्भविष्यति अविर-विकन्यायेन । तद्यथा अवेर्मांसमिति विगृह्य अविक-शब्दादुत्पत्तिर्भवति । (dvayoḥ śabdayoḥ samānārtha-yorekena vigraho'parasmādutpattirbhaviṣyati avira-vikanyāyena | tadyathā avermāṃsamiti vigṛhya avika-śabdādutpattirbhavati |) M. Bh. on IV.1.88; cf. also M. Bh. on IV.1.89; IV.2.60; IV.3.131,V.1.7,28; VI.2.11.
