Goṣṭhac (गोष्ठच्).—A tad.affix applied to words like गो (go) and others in the sense of 'a place'; cf. गेष्ठजादयः स्थानादिषु पशुनाम। पशुना-मादिभ्य उपसंख्यानम् (geṣṭhajādayaḥ sthānādiṣu paśunāma| paśunā-mādibhya upasaṃkhyānam) | गवां स्थानं गोगोष्ठम्, अश्वगोष्ठम्ः महिषीगोष्ठम् (gavāṃ sthānaṃ gogoṣṭham, aśvagoṣṭhamḥ mahiṣīgoṣṭham) Kas.on P.v.2.29 It is very likely that words like गोष्ठ, दघ्न (goṣṭha, daghna) and others were treated as pratyayas by Panini and katyayana who followed Panini, because they were found always associated with a noun preceding them and never independently.
