Mahayana (major branch of Buddhism)
Ityuktaka (इत्युक्तक) refers to one of the twelve members of Buddhist texts (dvādaśāṅga), according to a note attached to the Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra chapter 51.—The sūtras called Jou-che-yu (Ityuktaka) ‘thus has it been said’ are of two kinds: 1) The first kind are those sūtras having as their concluding phrase (kie-kiu): “What I first promised to say has been said”. 2) The second kind is that of the sūtras called Yi-mou (variant tchou)-to-kia, i.e., itivṛttaka ‘thus did it happen’, a type of sūtra also existing outside of (or extracted from) the Tripiṭaka and the Mahāyānasūtras. Some people call them Mou-to-kia, i.e., vṛttaka ‘event’; this name, vṛttaka, is that of texts extracted from the Tripiṭaka and the Mahāyānsūtras. And what is it then? It is what the Buddha said.
The ityuktaka ‘thus has it been said’ and the itivṛttaka ‘thus has it happened’ correspond to the Pāli itivittaka.
Mahayana (महायान, mahāyāna) is a major branch of Buddhism focusing on the path of a Bodhisattva (spiritual aspirants/ enlightened beings). Extant literature is vast and primarely composed in the Sanskrit language. There are many sūtras of which some of the earliest are the various Prajñāpāramitā sūtras.

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