Punarūktavadābhāsa (पुनरूक्तवदाभास) refers to one of the various Alaṅkāras (‘figures of speech’) classified as Śabda (‘sound’), as employed in the Bhīṣmacarita (Bhishma Charitra) which is a mahākāvya (‘epic poem’) written by Hari Narayan Dikshit.—Unlike ‘anuprāsa’ and ‘yamaka’ we do not find frequent illustrations of punarūktavadābhāsa in this mahākāvya; however the poet has shown his skill in the use of this type of alaṅkāra. In V.7 of Bhīṣmacarita, the poet has aptly made the use of words “pralayānilā” and “atibhīṣaṇa” in similar sense.
