There are also other features of Udayana's style that may be mentioned here. Frequently he uses synonyms even in the case of technical philosophical terms. Then there is his usage of apt maxims and similes, examples of which can be traced also in the Nyäyakusumänjali87.

Udayana mentions five alternative ways in which the term ahasmät may be understood, namely in the sense of kärananisedhah, bhavanapratisedhah, svätmahetukatvam, nirupäkhyahetukatvam and svabhävaniyatatvam, and argues that in none of these senses the world can be said to be akasmät.
