Vy°, is the semi-vowel (i.e. half-consonantic) form of vi° before following a & ā (vya°, vyā), very rarely ū & o. The prefix vi° is very unstable, and a variety of forms are also attached to vy°, which, after the manner of all consonant-combinations in Pāḷi, may apart from its regular form vy° appear either as contracted to vv° (written v°), like vagga (for vyagga), vaya (for vyaya), vosita (=vyosita), *vvūha (=vyūha, appearing as °bhūha), or diaeretic as viy° (in poetry) or veyy° (popular), e.g. viyañjana, viyārambha, viyāyata; or veyvañjanika, veyyākaraṇa, veyyāyika. It further appears as by° (like byaggha, byañjana, byappatha, byamha, byāpanna, byābādha etc.). In a few cases vya° represents (a diaeretic) vi°, as in vyamhita & vyasanna; and vyā°=vi° in vyārosa.

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
