The compound is very common as prescribed in the case of a word in the genitive case with any other word connected with it; e. g. राजपुरुषः, गुरुपत्नी (rājapuruṣaḥ, gurupatnī) etc.; the other tatpurusa compounds viz. द्वितीयातत्पुरुष, तृतीयातत्पुरुष (dvitīyātatpuruṣa, tṛtīyātatpuruṣa) and others prescribed in connection with specific words or kinds of words. The word षष्ठीसमास (ṣaṣṭhīsamāsa) is also used in this sense.
