स्मरणीय स्मर्तव्य स्मर्य a. To be remembered, memorable.
अपस्मरणम् Reminding (?); सकृद्वचनेन ज्ञातस्य पुनर्वचनेन प्रयोजनमस्तीति । उच्यते । भवति अपस्मरणमपि प्रयोजनमित्युक्तम् । ŚB. on MS.5.1 1. (If the word is अप्रस्मरण it would mean 'absence of forgetting' प्र + स्मृ is used by Śabara in the sense 'to forget'. It is, therefore, likely that the reading here is अप्रस्मरण instead of अपस्मरण which does not appear in शबर's भाष्य elsewhere.)
