Source: BuddhaSasana: Concise Pali-English Dictionary

Bhasati, (cp. Epic Sk. bhaṣate) to bark (of dogs) J. IV, 182 (aor. bhasi; so read for T. bhusi).—pp. bhasitaṃ (as n.) bark ibid. (mahā-bhasitaṃ bhasi, read for bhusita). See also bhusati. (Page 500)

2) Bhāsati, 1 (bhāṣ; Dhtp 317: vacane; Dhtm 467; vācāya) to speak, to say, to speak to, to call M. I, 227, Sn. 158, 562, 722; Dh. 1, 246, 258; also bhāsate Sn. 452.—Pot. bhāseyya Vin. II, 189; Sn. 451, 930; SnA 468 (for udīraye Dh. 408); bhāse Dh. 102; Sn. 400; & bhāsaye A. II, 51= J. V, 509 (with gloss katheyya for joteyya=bhāseyya).—Aor. abhāsi Vin. IV, 54; PvA. 6, 17, 23, 69; 1st sg. also abhāsissaṃ (Cond.) Pv. I, 68 (=abhāsiṃ PvA. 34); imper. pres. bhāsa Sn. 346; ppr. bhāsamāne A. II, 51= J. V, 509; Sn. 426; Dh. 19; J.

II, 199.—An apparent ger. form abhāsiya It. 59, 60 (micchā vācaṃ abhāsiya) is problematic. It may be an old misspelling for ca bhāsiya, as a positive form is required by the sense. The vv. ll. however do not suggest anything else but abhāsiya; the editor of It suggests pa°.—Cp. anu, , samanu°. (Page 503)

context information

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family. 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.
