Vyakarana (Sanskrit grammar)

Source: Wikisource: A dictionary of Sanskrit grammar

Tadrāja (तद्राज).—The taddhita affixes अञ्,अण्,ञ्यङ, ण्य (, aṇ, ñyaṅa, ṇya), as also इञ्, छ्, ञ्युट्, ण्य, टेण्यण् (, ch, ñyuṭ, ṇya, ṭeṇyaṇ) and यञ् (yañ) given in the rules of Panini IV. 1.168-174 and V.3. 112-119. They are called तद्राज (tadrāja) as they are applied to such words as mean both the country and the warrior race or clan (क्षत्त्रिय (kṣattriya)): cf. तद्राजमाचक्षाणः तद्राजः (tadrājamācakṣāṇaḥ tadrājaḥ) S. K. on P. IV.l.168. The peculiar feature of these tadraja affixes is that they are omitted when the word to which they have been applied is used in the plural number; e. g. ऐक्ष्वाकः, ऐक्ष्वाकौ, इक्ष्वाकवः (aikṣvākaḥ, aikṣvākau, ikṣvākavaḥ); similarly इक्ष्वाकूणाम् (ikṣvākūṇām); cf. P.II.4.62.
