Vākyasaṃskārapakṣa (वाक्यसंस्कारपक्ष).—The grammarian's theory that as the individual words have practically no existence as far as the interpretation or the expression of sense is concerned, the sentence alone being capable of conveying the sense, the formation of individual words in a sentence is explained by putting them in a sentence and knowing their mutual relationship. The word गाम् (gām) cannot be explained singly by showing the base गो (go) and the case ending अम् (am) unless it is seen in the sentence गाम् आनय (gām ānaya); cf. यथा वाक्यसंस्कारपक्षे कृष्णादि-संबुद्धयन्त उपपदे ऋधेः क्तिनि कृते कृष्ण ऋध् ति इति स्थिते असिद्धत्वात्पूर्वमाद्गुणे कृते अचो रहाभ्यामिति द्वित्वं (yathā vākyasaṃskārapakṣe kṛṣṇādi-saṃbuddhayanta upapade ṛdheḥ ktini kṛte kṛṣṇa ṛdh ti iti sthite asiddhatvātpūrvamādguṇe kṛte aco rahābhyāmiti dvitvaṃ) .. Pari. Bhaskara Pari. 99. The view is put in alternation with the other view, viz. the पदसंस्कारपक्ष (padasaṃskārapakṣa) which has to be accepted in connection with the गौणमुख्य-न्याय (gauṇamukhya-nyāya); cf. पदस्यैव गौणार्थकत्वस्य ग्रहेण अस्य (padasyaiva gauṇārthakatvasya graheṇa asya) (गौणमुख्यन्यायस्य (gauṇamukhyanyāyasya)) पदकार्यविषयत्वमेवोचितम् (padakāryaviṣayatvamevocitam) | अन्यथा वाक्यसंस्कारपक्षे तेषु तदनापत्तिः (anyathā vākyasaṃskārapakṣe teṣu tadanāpattiḥ) Par. Sek. on Pari. 15, The grammarians usually follow the वाक्यसंकारपक्ष (vākyasaṃkārapakṣa).
