Ṭh (ठ्).—The second consonant of the lingual class possessed of the properties श्वासानुप्रदान, अघोष, विवृतकण्टत्व (śvāsānupradāna, aghoṣa, vivṛtakaṇṭatva) and महाप्राणत्व (mahāprāṇatva). For the syllable ठ (ṭha) at the beginning of taddhita affixes, the syllable इक (ika) is substituted; if however the affix (beginning with ठ) follows upon a word ending in इस्, उस्, उ, ऋ, लृ (is, us, u, , lṛ) and त् (t) then क (ka) is added instead of इक (ika); e. g. धानुष्कः, औदश्वित्कः (dhānuṣkaḥ, audaśvitkaḥ) etc.; cf. टस्येकः, इसुसुक्तान्तात् कः (ṭasyekaḥ, isusuktāntāt kaḥ), P. VII. 3.50, 51. Some scholars say that इक् (ik) and क् (k) are substituted for ठ् (ṭh) by the sutras quoted above; cf. KS. on VII. 3.50.
