Vyakarana (Sanskrit grammar)
Pūrvasthānika (पूर्वस्थानिक).—A variety of antarangatva mentioned by Nagesa in the Paribhasendusekhara, where an operation, affecting a part of a word which precedes that portion of the word which is affected by the other operation, is looked upon as antaranga; e. g. the टिलोप (ṭilopa) in स्रजिष्ठ (srajiṣṭha) (स्रग्विन् (sragvin) + इष्ठ (iṣṭha)) is looked upon as अन्तरङ्ग (antaraṅga) with respect to the elision of विन् (vin) which is बहिरङ्ग (bahiraṅga). This kind of antarangatva is, of course, not admitted by Nagesa although mentioned by him; cf. Par. Sek. Pari. 50,
