Vyakarana (Sanskrit grammar)

Source: Wikisource: A dictionary of Sanskrit grammar

Kaskādi (कस्कादि).—A class of compound-words headed by कस्क (kaska) in which the visarga occurring at the end of the first member is noticed as changed into स् (s) against the usual rules e. g. कस्कः, कौतस्कुतः भ्रातुष्पुत्रः, सद्यस्कालः, धनुष्कपालम् (kaskaḥ, kautaskutaḥ bhrātuṣputraḥ, sadyaskālaḥ, dhanuṣkapālam) and others; cf. P. VIII.3.48. As this कस्कादिगण (kaskādigaṇa) is said to be आकृतिगण (ākṛtigaṇa), similar words can be said to be in the कस्कादिगण (kaskādigaṇa) although they are not actually mentioned in the गणपाठ (gaṇapāṭha).
