Veṣṭaka (वेष्टक).—lit. enclosure or envelope; the term is used in the sense of परिग्रहं (parigrahaṃ) with reference to the repetition of one and the same word more than once in the Krama and other artificial recitals; cf. परिग्रहे त्वनाषीन्तात् तेन वैकाक्षरीकृतात् । परॆषां न्यास-माचारं, व्यालिस्तौ चेत् स्वरौ परौ ॥ (parigrahe tvanāṣīntāt tena vaikākṣarīkṛtāt | paraॆṣāṃ nyāsa-mācāraṃ, vyālistau cet svarau parau ||) on which Uvvata remarks परिग्रहे वेष्टके (parigrahe veṣṭake).
Vyakarana (व्याकरण, vyākaraṇa) refers to Sanskrit grammar and represents one of the six additional sciences (vedanga) to be studied along with the Vedas.

Kavya (poetry)Source: archive.org: Naisadhacarita of Sriharsa
Veṣṭaka (वेष्टक) in “naveṣṭakaveṣṭanā” is mentioned in the Naiṣadha-carita 19.16.—Translation follows the construction nava + iṣṭaka. But Cāṇḍūpaṇḍita construes the expression also as “na veṣṭakaveṣṭanā” and explains veṣṭaka as a kind of resin used for catching birds. He gives cepa as an equivalent. See notes. Cāṇḍū’s explanation is ofund also in Īśānadeva and Jinarāja, but the latter two give another very curious meaning of veṣṭaka—“latrine”!
Kavya (काव्य, kavya) refers to Sanskrit poetry, a popular ancient Indian tradition of literature. There have been many Sanskrit poets over the ages, hailing from ancient India and beyond. This topic includes mahakavya, or ‘epic poetry’ and natya, or ‘dramatic poetry’.
