Let us take the example of "sOyam dEvadattaH". I understand that you said/implied in an earlier email/post that the example of "sOyam dEvadattaH" corresponds to an instance of akhanDAkAra-vRtti. Is it truly so? After ignoring/discarding all the irrelevant adjectives/attributes from both "that dEvadattaH" and "this dEvadattaH" there will remain enough adjectives/attributes to make that claim "sOyam dEvadattaH" and hence it cannot be a situation for niShprakAraka-vRtti/akhanDAkAra-vRtti, right? Indeed, specifically because of the availability of such common adjectives/attributes between the two - "that dEvadattaH" and "this dEvadattaH" - it enables one to make that claim that "this dEvadattaH" is indeed the very same as "that dEvadattaH". 
Every other laukika / vyavahArika example of an 'object' being objectified, to illustrate the associated akhanDAkAra-vRtti [?= niShprakAraka-vRtti] will be met with a similar situation, especially when we compare that case with a corresponding case of the same object being objectified now associated with sakhanDAkAra-vRtti [?= saprakAraka-vRtti]. 
So then we can consider the following four distinct cases: (1) "ghaTAkAra-vRtti-janya-jnAna     of the ghaTa" on the one hand, and (2) "akhanDAkAra-vRtti-janya-jnAna of the ghaTa" on the other hand.  
(3) "paTAkAra-vRtti-janya-jnAna       of the  paTa" on theone hand, and (4) "akhanDAkAra-vRtti-janya-jnAna of the  paTa"on the other hand. 
Of course we accept that (1)-&-(3) will be quitedifferent, because of the differences in the attributes of the ghaTa and paTa.
You said that (2) will be  ghaTa-viShayaka-akhaNDAkAra-vRtti  . . . and may be similarly (3) also. Will (1)-&-(2) [and again, (3)-&-(4)] be the same knowledge, ordifferent? If same why same? If different why different, and how muchdifferent will be those two from one another? 
 Will (2)-&-(4) be the same knowledge, ordifferent? If same why same? If different why different, and how muchdifferent will be those two from one another? 
To rephrase the questions, what will be the difference between (a) attributeless-ghaTa and (b) attributeless-paTa . . . ? If we remove all (all known/knowable/unknown/unknowable/etc) the attributes from both "that dEvadattaH" and "this dEvadattaH" what will remain . . . ? Any more "dEvadattaH" at all ?

A knowledge of the ghaTa arises from the ghaTAkAra-vRtti as usually understood. 

​Wrong sentence written because of lack of understanding.
vRtti is GYAnam, it doesn't give rise to some other GYAnam.
To be precise, you may add vRttyupahitachaitanyam is GYAnam.
What will be that knowledge of the same ghaTa arising from an akhanDAkAra-vRtti associated with it?

Wrong sentence as previous one.
So, it should be 'how do you express ghaTa-viShayaka-akhaNDAkAra-vRtti'?
The best answer is, it can't be expressed.
But, if you need to understand anyhow then consider it as GYAna of ghaTa without mentioning ghaTatvam as it's dharma.
Will it be the same knowledge, or different? 

​akhaNDAkAravRtti or niShprakAraka-vRtti is different from saprakAraka or sakhaNDa one, otherwise why should we use different words for them.
I guess that it will be different because of the fact that the ghaTAkAra-vRtti is different from the akhanDAkAra-vRtti associated with it. If different, how different will be those two from one another?

​The difference will be in the way they reveal ghaTa. One will reveal only ghaTa and other will reveal it with it's quality/ties.
"ghaTAkAra-vRtti-janya-jnAna of the ghaTa"  -and-  "akhanDAkAra-vRtti-janya-jnAna of the ghaTa".  

​First learn to use words correctly.
I'm saying this because just a few days ago I corrected someone here. I thought he will correct this after learning!!​
