Taittirīyaprātiśākhya (तैत्तिरीयप्रातिशाख्य).—Called also कृष्णयजुः-प्रातिशाख्य (kṛṣṇayajuḥ-prātiśākhya) and hence representing possibly all the different branches or Sakhas of the कृष्णयजुर्वेद (kṛṣṇayajurveda), which is not attributed definitely to a particular author but is supposed to have been revised from time to time and taught by various acaryas who were the followers of the Taittiriya Sakha.The work is divided into two main parts, each of which is further divided into twelve sections called adhyayas, and discusses the various topics such as letters and their properties, accents, euphonic changes and the like, just as the other Pratisakhya works. It is believed that Vararuci, Mahiseya and Atreya wrote Bhasyas on the Taittiriya Pratisakhya, but at present, only two important commentary works on it are available-(a) the 'Tribhasyaratna', based upon the three Bhasyas mentioned above as the title shows, written by Somayarya and (b) the 'Vaidikabharana' written by Gopalayajvan. For details see Introduction to 'Taittiriya Pratisakhya' ed. Govt Oriental Library Series, Mysore.
