Also of which the term or period is yet unexpired or unfulfilled. 3 That has space yet remaining to be crossed or passed; having interval;--used of any object at a distance or apart. Also having interstice generally. 4 From accommodation of the first sense arises the classical and important sense Particular, not general or common; i. e. confined, restricted, observing bounds; as śēta is particular with respect to jamīna, phūlajhāḍa with reference to jhāḍa. Hence also the sense Comparative or relative; respective or referential.
