Vyakarana (Sanskrit grammar)

Source: Wikisource: A dictionary of Sanskrit grammar

Jñāpana (ज्ञापन).—A conclusion or inference, drawn from a word or words in a Sūtra, with a view to assign a purpose to that or to those words which otherwise would have been without a purpose. The word is sometimes used in the sense of ज्ञापक (jñāpaka), and refers to the word or words supposed to be without any purpose and therefore looked upon as a reason or हेतु (hetu) for the desired conclusion to be drawn. The words किमेतस्य ज्ञापने प्रयोजनम् (kimetasya jñāpane prayojanam) occur very frequently in the Mahābhāșya: cf, M.Bh. on P. Ι. I. 11, 14,19, 55, 68, Ι. 2.41 etc. etc.
