215. Causative. The chief points to be noticed in the formation of causative- stems have been given already (in Less. VII); some additional ones follow .
216. Most roots in अ and ऋ add प् before the conjugation sign; thus, दापयति from lदा; धापयति; गापयति; अर्पयति from ऋ . श्रा makes श्रपयति; ज्ञा and स्त्रा, sometimes ज्ञापयति, etc., sometimes ज्ञपयति, etc. 1पा, ‘ drink', makes पाययति (as though from पी). A few roots in इ and ई take the same प् with various irregularities; thus. अध्यापयति from अधि-इ.
217. Medial or initial अ in a light syllable is commonly lengthened, but sometimes remains unchanged. Thus, पत्, पातयति; कम्, कामयते; चम्, चामयति. But most roots in अम्, and जन्, त्वर्, प्रथ , व्यथ , with other rarer ones, generally keep the अ short; thus, गम्, गमयति
