Hello Girish,

As I understand these lines, the term varNaagama refers to addition or insertion of a sound, while the term varNaapatti refers to replacement or substitution.  Best,

Dear Indologists,
Could anyone please interpret and also translate into English the term  varn?apatti  used in the Pañjika-bhas?ya of the Pan?iniya Siks?a 4  as follows:
Naradaudvrajyor matena yamo varn?agama iti vidhiyate. ....Anye tu yamam? varn?apattim? manyante.Tatha ca Saunakah? -sparsa yaman ananunasikah? svan pares?u
sparses?v anunasikes?u.
