Parasmaipada (परस्मैपद).—A term used in grammar with reference to the personal affixs ति, तः (ti, taḥ) etc. applied to roots. The term परस्मैपद (parasmaipada) is given to the first nine afixes ति, तः, अन्ति, सि, थः, थ, मि, वः (ti, taḥ, anti, si, thaḥ, tha, mi, vaḥ) and मः (maḥ), while the term आत्मनेपद (ātmanepada) is used in connection with the next nine त, आताम् (ta, ātām) etc.; cf. परस्मै परोद्देशार्थफलकं पदम् (parasmai paroddeśārthaphalakaṃ padam) Vac. Kosa. The term परस्मैपद (parasmaipada) is explained by some as representing the Active_Voice as contrasted with the Passive Voice which necessarily is characterized by the Aatmanepada affixes. The term परस्मैभाष (parasmaibhāṣa) in the sense of परस्मैपद (parasmaipada) was used by ancient grammarians and is also found in the Vaarttika आत्मनेभाषपस्मैभाषयोरुपसंख्यानम् (ātmanebhāṣapasmaibhāṣayorupasaṃkhyānam) P. VI. 3.8 Vart.1 . The term परस्मैभाष (parasmaibhāṣa) as applied to roots, could be explained as परस्मै क्रियां (parasmai kriyāṃ) (or क्रियाफलं (kriyāphalaṃ)) भाषन्ते इति परस्मैभाषाः (bhāṣante iti parasmaibhāṣāḥ) and originally such roots as had their activity meant for another, used to take the परस्मैपद् (parasmaipad) affixes, while the rest which had the activity meant for self, took the आत्मनेपद (ātmanepada) affixes. Roots having activity for both, took both the terminations and were termed उभयपदिनः (ubhayapadinaḥ).
