Kavyashastra (science of poetry)

Source: Shodhganga: Mālatīmādhava of Bhavabhūti (kavya-shastra)

Sandigdha (सन्दिग्ध) refers to “(words that are) ambiguous”, according to Mammaṭa-Bhaṭṭa’s Kāvyaprakāśa verse 7.50-51.—The doṣas (or “poetic defects”) are regarded as undesirable elements [of a composition]. Any element which tends to detract the poetic composition is a demerit in general terms. In other words, doṣas are the opposites of the guṇālaṃkāras. [...] In the Sāhityadarpaṇa, Viśvanātha says doṣas are five fold. [...] Mammaṭabhaṭṭa says that padadoṣa (or “defects of word”) are of sixteen types [i.e., sandigdha (ambiguous)].
