iti [ iti ]

1 f. ityaí ( dat. ), see √ i above

( for 2. iti See s.v. )

 iti [ iti ]

2 ind. ( fr. pronominal base 3. i ), in this manner, thus ( in its original signification iti refers to something that has been said or thought, or lays stress on what precedes

in the Brāhmaṇas it is often equivalent to ' as you know ', reminding the hearer or reader of certain customs, conditions, etc. supposed to be known to him).

In quotations of every kind iti means that the preceding words are the very words which some person has or might have spoken, and placed thus at the end of a speech it serves the purpose of inverted commas ( ity uktvā, having so said; iti kṛtvā, having so considered, having so decided). It may often have reference merely to what is passing in the mind, e.g. bālo' pi nâvamantavyo manuṣya iti bhūmipaḥ, a king, though a child, is not to be despised, saying to one's self, ' he is a mortal,' ( Gr. 928. ) In dram. iti tathā karoti means ' after these words he acts thus. ' Sometimes iti is used to include under one head a number of separate objects aggregated together ( e.g. ijyâdhyayanadānāni tapaḥ satyaṃ kṣamā damaḥ alobha iti mārgo 'yam, ' sacrificing, studying, liberality, penance, truth, patience , self-restraint, absence of desire,' this course of conduct, etc. ) Iti is sometimes followed by evam, iva, or a demonstrative pronoun pleonastically ( e.g. tām brūyād bhavatîty evam, her he may call ' lady ', thus). Iti may form an adverbial compound with the name of an author ( e.g. iti-pāṇini, thus according to Pāṇini). It may also express the act of calling attention ( Io ! behold ! ) It may have some other significations, e.g. something additional ( as in ityādi, etc. ), order, arrangement specific or distinctive, and identity. It is used by native commentators after quoting a rule to express ' according to such a rule ' ( e.g. anudāttaṅita ity ātmanepadam bhavati, according to the rule of Pāṇini i, 3, 12, the Ātmane-pada takes place). Kim iti = kim, wherefore, why ? ( In the Śatapatha-brāhmaṇa ti occurs for iti ; Prākṛt ti and tti. )
