Upadhmānīya (उपध्मानीय).—lit. blowing; a term applied to the visarga when followed by the consonant प् (p) or फ् (ph). The upadhmānīya is looked upon as a letter or phonetic element, which is always connected with the preceding vowel. As the upadhmānīya is an optional substitute for the visarga before the letter प् (p) or फ् (ph), when, in writing, it is to be shown instead of the visarga, it is shown as ᳶ, or as w , or even as x just as the Jihvāmūlīya; cf. उपध्मायते शब्दायते इति, उप समीपे ध्मायते शब्द्यते इति वा (upadhmāyate śabdāyate iti, upa samīpe dhmāyate śabdyate iti vā) com. on Kāt.
