vyanta (व्यंत).—a A formation made, according to the laws of grammar, from vi & anta, to express the English word causal as a designation of verb-formations made upon the active verb. It literally means That has vi at the end or as the concluding letter;--used of a root; and as all roots assume this letter in entering into the causal form (e. g. karavi, māravi, sōḍavi, from kara, māra, sōḍa), the formation well answers the object proposed.
