1) Lohitādi (लोहितादि).—A class of words headed by लोहित (lohita) to which the affix क्यव् (kyav) (य) is added in the sense of 'becoming', to form a denominative root-base which gets the verb-endings of both the padas; e. g. लोहितायति, लोहितायते (lohitāyati, lohitāyate); निद्रायति, निद्रायते (nidrāyati, nidrāyate); the class लोहितादि (lohitādi) is considered as आकृतिगण (ākṛtigaṇa) so that similar denominative verb-bases could be explained; cf. Kas. on P.III.1. 13;

2) Lohitādi.—A class of words headed by लेहित (lehita), to which the fem. affix ष्फ (ṣpha) (आयनी (āyanī)) is added after they have got the taddhita affix यञ् (yañ) added to them in the sense of 'a grandchild'; e. g. लौहित्यायनी, कात्या-यनी (lauhityāyanī, kātyā-yanī) etc.; cf Kas. on P. IV. 1.18.
