Laghuprayatnatara (लघुप्रयत्नतर).—Requiring still less effort for utterance than that required for the usual utterance; the term is used in connection with the utterance of the consonant य् (y) which is substituted for Visarga following upon long आ (ā) and followed by any vowel. In such cases य् (y) is not pronounced at all according to Śākalya, while it is somewhat audibly pronounced according to Śākațāyana; cf. व्योर्लघुप्रयत्नतरः शाकटा-यनस्य (vyorlaghuprayatnataraḥ śākaṭā-yanasya) P. VIII. 3.18.
