Vyakarana (Sanskrit grammar)

Source: Wikisource: A dictionary of Sanskrit grammar

Śubhrādi (शुभ्रादि).—A class of words headed by the word शुभ्र (śubhra) to which the taddhita affix एय (eya) (ढक् (ḍhak)) is added in the sense of a descendant in spite of other affixes being prescribed by some other rules which sometimes are added optionally with this एय (eya); e.g. शौभ्रेयः, वैधवेयः रौहिणेयः (śaubhreyaḥ, vaidhaveyaḥ rauhiṇeyaḥ). This class is looked upon as आकृति-गण (ākṛti-gaṇa) and hence if this affix एय (eya) is seen applied although not prescribed actually as in the word गाङ्गेय (gāṅgeya), the word is supposed to have been included in this class; cf. P. IV. I.123.
