Lesson VI. 137. Neuter adjectives (but not substantives) in Bu may take the forms proper to the masculine in the dat., abl.-gen., loc. sing., and gen.-loc. dual. NAH 138. Changes of final 7 n. Before initial a j and fe an becomes a ñ; thus, ara 79 tân janān becomes - Tata tāñ janān; ATT TT tân catrūn = arrin tāñ çatrūn. In te last case, however, a ch is almost always substituted for the initial &; thus, M12 tāñ chatrūn. n sind 139. Final a n, before an initial a l, is assimilated and becomes nasalized I, which is written a ñl, or (what is the same thing) . ; thus ata 1979 tān lokān becomes aros ata tääl lokān or ni atata tān lokān. nyric 140. Before the surd palatal, lingual, and dental mutes there is inserted after final q na sibilant of each of those classes re- spectively, before which a n becomes anusvāra; thus for ata o tân ca we find aig tanç ca; for ata qu tân tathā, ara tāns tathā.* Vocabulary VI. Verbs: A cam + vt ā (ācāmati) sip, ? (rccháti — $ 109) go to; fall| drink, rinse the mouth. to one's lot, fall upon. tam (támyati) be sad. in kram + ut ā (ākråmati) tuş (túsyati) rejoice, take stride up to, attack. pleasure in (w. instr.). l a dīv (divyali) play.

  • This rule really involves an historic survival, the large ma-

jority of cases of final on in the language being for original ns. Practically, the rule applies only to a n before y c and at, since cases involving the other initials are excessively rare. Univ Calif - Digitized by Microsoft ®
