Yāvant,(pron.rel.) [cp.Sk.yāvant; same formation as demonstr.pron.tāvant,of which the P.uses the adv.nt.tāva (t) form more frequently than the adj.tāvant.The only case so far ascertained where tāvant occurs as adj.is J.V,72 (see below)] 1.yāvant as adj.:as many (as) Dh.337 (hāvant’ettha samāgatā as many as are assembled here); J.V,72 (yāvanto uda-bindūni ...tāvanto gaṇḍū jāyetha; C.on p.74 expls by yattakāni; yāvatā pl.as many as Pv.II,116yāvanto Pv.II,716 (=yāvatakā PvA.103); J.V,370 (detha vatthāni ...yavanto eva icchati as many as he wants).-- 2.yāvat (nt.) used adverbially.The examples and meanings given here are really to be combined with those given under yāva2 (yāvad°).It is hardly possible to dis‹-› tinguish clearly between the 2 categories; the t may well have been reduced to d or been replaced by another sandhi consonant.However,the specific Pāli use of yāva (like tāva) justifies a separate treatment of yāva in that form only.-- yāvat occurs only in combn with ca (where we may assume either a peculiar nt.form yāvaṁ:see yāva 2; or an assimilation of t to ñ before c.-- The form yāva mahantaṁ may originally have been a yāvaṁ m.) as yāvañ ca “and that,” “i.e.” how much,however much,so great S.I,149 (passa yāvañ ca te idaṁ aparaddhaṁ:see how great a mistake you have made in this); It.91,92 (passa yāvañ ca ārakā & santike:see how far and near).yāvañ c’idaṁ stands for yad-idaṁ (see ya° 4) in peculiar use of restriction at M.III,169; S.II,178; A.III,34.-- 3.The nt.form yāvat further occurs in foll.cpds.:°āyukaṁ (better as yāvat° than yāvatā°) as long as life lasts,for a lifetime Mhvs 3,41; VvA.196 (as adj.°āyukā dibba-sampatti); PvA.66,73,133; °icchakaṁ as much as is desired,according to one’s wishes Pug.12,25; Vism.154 (here spelt yāvad-icchakaṁ); °ihaṁ see under yāva (cpds.) -- Instr.yavatā:see sep.(Page 555)
