There is one more edition of the grammatical Sarasvatī-kaṇṭhābharaṇa 8th adh. (Gujarati script for the commentary)  :
Bhojadeva-viracitaṃ sarasvatīkaṇṭhābharaṇa-vaidikavyākaraṇam | aṣṭamo 'dhyāyāḥ | prathama-dvitīyapādau (vaidikīprakriyā) | tṛtīya-caturthapādau (svaraprakriyā) /  New Delhi : Rāṣṭrīya Vedavidyā Pratiṣṭhāna, 1992

Le 7 janv. 2015 à 11:27, Christophe Vielle <christophe.vielle at uclouvain.be> a écrit [note the here corrected ref. to KS] :

> Dear list,
> 
> in a commentary to a Sanskrit play (dated from the 9th to the 11th c.), there is the following quotation from/reference to a sūtra-work by one Bhoja  :
> 
> vānarajātibhir ity atra vā śabdasya+eva+ity arthaḥ | vā śabdaḥ samuccaya-vikalpa-nirṇayeṣv iti bhojasūtreṇoktam | atra nirṇaye | antarhitābhir eva+ity arthaḥ | 
> 
> (the glossed word is in italics : the meaning is either in the śabda itself or - according to the  referred sūtra -, and as it would be the case here, in the nirṇaya).
> 
> This could be a reference to one work among the several ones attributed to the 11th c. king of Dhara.
> However, Bhoja's only work in sūtra-form is the grammatical Sarasvatī-kaṇṭhābharaṇa (*), in 8 adh., of which I am aware of the following two editions only :
> 
> • 4 vols ed. in the Trivandrum Sanskrit Series, no. 117 (1935), 127 (1937), 140 (1938) and 154 (1948), of which the vol. 4 only is e-available through the DLI : http://www.new.dli.ernet.in/scripts/FullindexDefault.htm?path1=/data14/upload/0012/922&first=1&last=547&barcode=99999990322092

> • ed. T. R. Chintamani, prefaced by Kunhan Raja, Madras University Sanskrit Series no. 11, 1937, which should be available through the DLI (but it does not function in this case) :
> 
> http://www.new.dli.ernet.in/scripts/FullindexDefault.htm?path1=/rawdataupload/upload/0121/707&first=1&last=530&barcode=5990010121705
> 
> 
> 
> Would the commentary refer to that work (which I am presently unable to check fully)?
> 
>  Or would it be possible that there exists a (mīmāṃsā or niyāya, possibly lost) sūtra-work dealing with śabda-topic and authored by another (older) Bhoja? 
> 
> Note that Aruṇagirinātha in his com. to Kumārasambhava 5,65 (cf. also Nārāyaṇa Paṇḍita ad loc.) refers to a grammatical sūtra by Bhoja in the followin manner :
> 
> tadādau ceti bhojasūtram 
> 
> (TSS 32, p. 251-2:  https://ia601602.us.archive.org/20/items/Trivandrum_Sanskrit_Series_TSS/TSS-032_Kumarasambhava_Part_2_-_TG_Sastri_1913.pdf )
> 
> 
> Thank you for any comment or help in that matter.

> * which is different from Bhoja's encyclopaedic work on poetics/rhetorics samely entitled Sarasvatī-kaṇṭhābharaṇa, in 5 paricchedas, available through the following editions:

> Note that I do not know which (of the two) Sarasvatī-kanṭhābharaṇa was edited by Anundoram Borooah in 1883, reprinted Gauhati, Publ. Board Assam, 1969 and, more recently, within the Works of Anundoram Borooah : with a note on Anundoram Barooah and his works by Malinee Goswami, Guwahati : Publication Board Assam, 2007, pp. 667-1050, and which could therefore constitute the editio princeps of one or the other work.
