This paper consists of an annotated translation into Japanese of Kauṇḍabhaṭṭa's Vaiyākaraṇabhūṣaṇasāra on the first two verses (kārikā) of the Vaiyākaraṇamatonmajjana or Vaiyākaṇasiddhāntakārikā by Bhaṭṭoji Dīkṣita.

Verses run as follows.

k.l. phaṇibhāṣitabhāsyābdheḥ śabdakaustubha uddhṛtaḥ /

tatra nirṇīta evārthaḥ saṁkṣepeṇeha kathyate //

k.2. phalavya̅pa̅rayor dha̅tur a̅śraye tu tiṅaḥ smṛta̅ḥ /

phale pradha̅naṁ vya̅pa̅ras tiṅarthas tu viśeṣaṇam //

The first verse states, in terms of a maṅgala of a benedictory type, that thoughts represented in the work are endorsed by Patañjali's Maha̅bha̅sya. The second verse, with which the present paper is chiefly concerned, reveals Bhaṭṭoji Di̅kṣita's own view regarding the meanings of verbal roots (dha̅tu). In this verse it is stated (1) that in a verbal form such as pacati 'He is cooking' verbal root (pac 'cook') denotes an action (vya̅pa̅ra) and its result (phala) separately, and affix ('ti') denotes substratum (a̅śraya) of the action-in an utterance such as pacyate '[Something] is being cooked' affix ('te') denotes one of the action's result, and (2) that among the meanings of a verbal form including two other meanings, viz. a number (saṁkhya̅) and a time (ka̅la) reference, action becomes most prominent (pradha̅na) and others are qualifiers (viśeṣaṇa) with respect to it. Here is expressed the idea that in a verbal cognition (śa̅bdabodha) an action conveyed by a verbal root appears as the chief qualificand (dha̅tvarthavya̅pa̅ramukhyaviśesyakabodha).

In his Vaiya̅karaṇabhu̅ṣaṇasa̅ra on this verse, Kaunḍabhaṭṭa is involved mainly in criticizing the views of the Nya̅ya and the Mị̅ma̅ṁnsa̅ Bha̅ṭṭa schools. Naiya̅yikas maintain that in an utterance such as pacati the verbal affix denotes '(interal, conscious) effort' (kṛti) which is nothing but an action according to the grammarians and is to be related to the significand of a nominative form as its qualifier (prathama̅nta̅rthamukhyaviśesyakabodha). Bha̅ṭṭa Mi̅ma̅ṁsakas, on the other hand, hold that an action (bha̅vana̅) which is denoted by an verbal affix (a̅khya̅ta) appears as the principal qualificand in a verbal cognition (a̅khya̅ta̅rthabha̅vana̅mukhyaviśeṣyakabodha).

The following is a synopsis of the Vaiya̅karaṇabhu̅ṣaṇasa̅ra on k.2.
