Vyakarana (Sanskrit grammar)Source: Wikisource: A dictionary of Sanskrit grammar
Svarabhakti (स्वरभक्ति).—A vowel part; appearance of a consonant as a vowel; the character of a vowel borne by a consonant. Many times a semivowel which consists of one letter has to be divided especially for purposes of metre, as also for accentuation into two letters or rather, has to be turned into two letters by inserting a vowel before it or after it, for instance य् (y) is to be turned into इय् (iy) e. g, in त्रियम्बकं यजामहे (triyambakaṃ yajāmahe), while र् (r) or रेफ (repha) is to be turned into र् ऋ (r ṛ) as for instance in कर्हि चित् (karhi cit) which is to be uttered as कर् ऋ हृि चित् (kar ṛ hṛि cit). This prefixing or suffixing of a vowel is called स्वरभक्तिः (svarabhaktiḥ) cf. स्वरभक्तिः पूर्वभागक्षराङ्गं द्राघीयसी सार्धमात्रेतरे च । अधोनान्या (svarabhaktiḥ pūrvabhāgakṣarāṅgaṃ drāghīyasī sārdhamātretare ca | adhonānyā) (R. Pr. I. 32.35; cf. also न संयोगं स्वरभाक्तिर्विहन्ति (na saṃyogaṃ svarabhāktirvihanti) R. Pr. VI. 35; cf. also रेफात् खरोपहिताद् व्यञ्जनोदयाद् ऋकारवर्णा स्वरभक्तिरुत्तराः (rephāt kharopahitād vyañjanodayād ṛkāravarṇā svarabhaktiruttarāḥ) R. Pr. VI. 46. In Panini's grammar, however, the word अञ्भक्ति (añbhakti), which means the same, is used for स्वरभक्ति (svarabhakti); cf. ऋति ऋ वा लृति लृ वा इत्युभयत्रापि विधेयं वर्णद्वयं द्विमात्रम् । आद्यस्य मध्ये द्वौ रेफौ तयोरेकां मात्रा । अभितेज्भक्तेरपरा । (ṛti ṛ vā lṛti lṛ vā ityubhayatrāpi vidheyaṃ varṇadvayaṃ dvimātram | ādyasya madhye dvau rephau tayorekāṃ mātrā | abhitejbhakteraparā |) S. K. on VI. 1.101.
