Sri Venkata Sriram ji has given the sandhi viccheda. The word means:
Shakti = ३. An iron spear or dart.
https://kosha.sanskrit.today/word/sa/RSTi ऋष्टि = a spear/lance/sword.
Putting these together we get the meaning of the first line: kabandha-s,
with their heads severed, with their hands holding khaDga (sword). spear
and lance (whatever difference is meant across the three types of
weapons). The second line: The other great asuras are crying out to Devi:
tarry, tarry (stay, do not run/move away).
And it's accurate pronunciation? = शक्त्यृष्टि. Sriram ji has given the
word. You can test your pronounciation. This is a usage in the
Mahabharata शक्त्यृष्टि परासहस्तानां ..I think this would be properly
rendered in Telugu: శక్త్యృష్టి
