I would add the pustakalaya 'library' can mean 'publishing house'.
Can't sampadita mean 'assembled' or 'collected' in addition to completed?

Bhasabhasya and bhasatika.  Vernacular commentary. My impression is that the first often means not quite a commentary but a somewhat expanded translation into a modern language, while the second may mean more what we usually mean by 'commentary'.  What do others think?
