Śābdabodha (शाब्दबोध).—Verbal interpretation; the term is generally used with reference to the verbal interpretation of a sentence as arising from that of the words which are all connected directly or indirectly with the verb-activity. It is defined as पदजन्यपदार्थोपस्थितिजन्यबोधः (padajanyapadārthopasthitijanyabodhaḥ). According to the grammarians, verbal activity is the chief thing in a sentence and all the other words (excepting the one which expresses verbal activity) are subordinated to the verbal activity and hence are connected with it; cf. पदज्ञानं तु करणं द्वारे तत्र पदार्थधीः । शाब्दबोधः फलं तत्र शक्तिधीः सहकारिणी । मुक्तावली (padajñānaṃ tu karaṇaṃ dvāre tatra padārthadhīḥ | śābdabodhaḥ phalaṃ tatra śaktidhīḥ sahakāriṇī | muktāvalī) III.81.
