vākyakāra वाक्यकार

Definition: a term used for a writer who composes a work in pithy, brief assertions in the manner of sutras, such as the Varttikas. The term is found used in Bhartrhari's Mahabhasyadipika where by contrast with the term Bhasyakara it possibly refers to the varttikakara Katyayana; cf. एषा भाष्यकारस्य कल्पना न वाक्यकारस्य Bhartrhari Mahabhasyadipika. cf. also Nagesa's statement वाक्यकारो वार्तिकरमारभते: cf. also चुलुम्पादयो वाक्यकारीया; Madhaviya Dhatuvrtti.
