I came across the word 'Paratpara' and found the meaning to be 'Greatest of the Great'. This led me to try and understand it in relation with other similar words I already knew - paraspara(mutual) and parampara(tradition)

When I googled, I find: The root word here is 'para' (beyond) Some declensions are: param (superlative of para, meaning 'supreme') parat (of the supreme?) paras (of/by the supreme?)

What I struggle to understand is how the sounds(/morphemes?) 'am/as/ath' occur in the words paratpara/paraspara/parampara. Are they declensions or sandhis/conjugations. If so what do they mean?
