Vyakarana (Sanskrit grammar)

Source: Wikisource: A dictionary of Sanskrit grammar

Bidādi (बिदादि).—A class of words headed by the word बिद (bida) to which the affix अ (a) (अञ् ()) is added in the sense of a grandchild and further descendants; e.g. बैदः, और्वः, काश्यपः, कौशिकः (baidaḥ, aurvaḥ, kāśyapaḥ, kauśikaḥ) etc. The words in this class are mostly names of sages. In the case of such words as are not names of sages, the affix अ (a) is added in the sense of the offspring and not any descendant. e.g. पौत्रः, दौहित्रः (pautraḥ, dauhitraḥ) etc.; cf. Kas. on P.IV.1.104.
