Dhātuvṛtti (धातुवृत्ति).—A general term applied to a treatise discussing roots, but specifically used in connection with the scholarly commentary written by Madhavacārya, the reputed scholar and politician at the court of the Vijayanagara kings in the fourteenth century, on the Dhatupatha ot Panini. The work is generally referred to as माधवीया-धातुवृति (mādhavīyā-dhātuvṛti) to distinguish it from ordinary commentary works called also धातुवृत्ति (dhātuvṛtti) written by grammarians like Wijayananda and others.
