Jit (जित्).—(l) lit. affix marked with the mute letter ज् (j); e. g. जस्, जसि, जुस् (jas, jasi, jus). the word जित् (jit) is not however found used in this sense; (2) a word supposed to be marked with the mute indicatory letter ज् (j).The word is used in this sense by the Varttikakara saying that such a word does not denote itself but its synonyms; cf. जित् पर्यायवचनस्यैव राजांद्यर्थम् (jit paryāyavacanasyaiva rājāṃdyartham) P.I.1.68 Vart. 7. In the Sutra सभा राजामनुष्यपूर्वा (sabhā rājāmanuṣyapūrvā) P.II. 4. 23, the word राजन् (rājan) is supposed to be जित् (jit) and hence it denotes इन्, ईश्वर (in, īśvara) etc.; but not the word राजन् (rājan) itself; (3) In the Pratisakhya works जित् (jit) means the first two consonants of each class (वर्ग (varga)); e.g. क्, ख्,च्, छ् (k, kh, c, ch). etc. which are the same as खय् (khay) letters in Panini's terminology; cf. द्वौ द्वौ प्रथमौ जित् (dvau dvau prathamau jit), V. Pr.I.50;III.13.Source: Wikisource: A dictionary of Sanskrit grammar
