Vyakarana (Sanskrit grammar)Source: Wikisource: A dictionary of Sanskrit grammar
Sāpekṣa (सापेक्ष).—With an expectancy in sense; although in grammar expectancy is at the root of, and forms a sort of a connecting link for, the various kinds of relations which exist between the different words of a sentence which has to give a composite sense, yet, if a word outside a compound is connected with a word inside a compound, especially with a second 50 or further member, the sense becomes ambiguous; and expectancy in such cases is looked upon as a fault; e. g. अप्रविष्टविषयो हि रक्षसाम् (apraviṣṭaviṣayo hi rakṣasām) Raghu XI. When, however, in spite of the fault of expectancy the sense is clear, the compound is admissible; cf. यदि सविशेषणानां वृत्तिर्न वृत्तस्य वा विशेषणं न प्रयुज्यते इत्युच्यते देवदत्तस्य गुरुकुलम् देवदत्तस्य गुरुपुत्रः,अत्र वृत्तिर्न प्राप्नोति। अगुरुकुलपुत्रादीनामिति वक्तव्यम् (yadi saviśeṣaṇānāṃ vṛttirna vṛttasya vā viśeṣaṇaṃ na prayujyate ityucyate devadattasya gurukulam devadattasya guruputraḥ, atra vṛttirna prāpnoti| agurukulaputrādīnāmiti vaktavyam) I M. Bh. on P II.1.1; cf. also the expression सापेक्षत्वेपि गमकत्वात्समासः (sāpekṣatvepi gamakatvātsamāsaḥ) often used by commentators.
