PREFACE
A PRACTICAL Vedic grammar has long been a desideratum.
I t is one of the chief aids to the study of the hymns of the
Veda called for forty-three years ago in the preface to his
edition of the Rigveda by Max Müller, who adds, ' I doubt
not that the time will come when no one in India will call
himself a Sanskrit scholar who cannot construe the hymns
of the ancient Rishis of his country’. I t is mainly due
to the lack of such a work that the study of Vedic literature,
despite its great linguistic and religious importance, has
never taken its proper place by the side of the study of
Classical Sanskrit either in England or India. Whitney's
excellent Sanskrit Grammar, indeed, treats the earlier lan¬
guage in its historical connexion with the later, but for this
very reason students are, as I have often been assured,
unable to acquire from it a clear knowledge of either the
one or the other, because beginners cannot keep the two
dialects apart in the process of learning. Till the publication of my large Vedic Grammar in 1910, no single work
comprehensively presented the early language by itself.
That work is, however, too extensive and detailed for the
needs of the student, being intended rather as a book of
reference for the scholar. Hence I have often been urged
to bring out a short practical grammar which would do for
the Vedic language what my Sanskrit Grammar for Beginners
does for the Classical language. I n the second edition
(1911) of the latter work I therefore pledged myself to

meet this demand as soon as I could. The present volume
redeems that pledge.
When planning the book I resolved, after much reflection,
to make it correspond paragraph by paragraph to the
Sanskrit Grammar, this being the best way to enable students
to compare and contrast every phenomenon of the earlier
and the later language. To this extent the present book
presupposes the other ; but it can quite well be used inde­
pendently. The experience of many years’ teaching, however,
leads me to dissuade beginners from starting the study of
Sanskrit by means of the present grammar. Students
should, in my opinion, always commence with classical
Sanskrit, which is more regular and definite, as well as
much more restricted in the number of its inflexional forms.
A good working knowledge of the later language should
therefore be acquired before taking up Vedic grammar,
which can then be rapidly learned.
In carrying out the parallelism of this grammar with
the other I have experienced a good deal of difficulty in
numbering the corresponding paragraphs satisfactorily,
because certain groups of matter are found exclusively in
the Vedic language, as the numerous subjunctive forms, or
much more fully, as the dozen types of infinitive compared
with only one in Sanskrit ; while some Sanskrit formations,
as the periphrastic future, are non-existent in the earlier
language. Nevertheless, I have, I think, succeeded in
arranging the figures in such a way that the corresponding
paragraphs of the two grammars can always be easily
compared. The only exception is the first chapter, con­
sisting of fifteen paragraphs, which in the Sanskrit Grammar
deals with the Nāgarī alphabet. As the present work
throughout uses transliteration only, it seemed superfluous
to repeat the description of the letters given in the earlier
work. I have accordingly substituted a general phonetic

survey of Vedic sounds as enabling the student to understand
clearly the linguistic history of Sanskrit. The employment
of transliteration has been necessary because by this means
alone could analysis by hyphens and accentuation be
adequately indicated. Duplication with Nāgarī characters,
as in the Sanskrit Grammar, would have increased the size
and the cost of the book without any compensating advan­
tage. An account of the accent, as of vital importance in
Vedic grammar, would naturally have found a place in the
body of the book, but owing to the entire absence of this
subject in the Sanskrit Grammar and to the fulness which
its treatment requires, its introduction there was impossible.
The accent is accordingly dealt with in Appendix I l l as
a substitute for the ‘ Chief Peculiarities of Vedic Grammar ’
appearing at the end of the Sanskrit Grammar.
The term Vedic is here used to comprehend not only the
metrical language of the hymns, but also the prose of
the Brāhmaṇas and of the Brāhmaṇa­like portions of the
Atharvaveda and of various recensions of the Yajurveda.
The grammatical material from the later period is mainly
given in small type, and is in any case regularly indicated
by the addition of the letter B (for Brāhmaṇa). Otherwise
the phase of the earlier language presented is that of the
Rigveda, as being both the oldest and furnishing the most
abundant material. But forms from the other Vedas are
often also supplied without any distinguishing mark as long
as they conform to the standard of the Rigveda. If, how­
ever, such forms are in any way abnormal, or i f it seemed
advisable to point out that they do not come from the
Rigveda, this is indicated by an added abbreviation in
brackets, as ' (AV.) ' for ' (Atharvaveda).’ On the other hand
' (RV.) ’ is sometimes added in order to indicate, for some
reason or other, that a form is restricted to the Rigveda.
I t is, of course, impossible to go much into detail thus in

a practical work ; but the exact source of any particular
form can always be ascertained by reference to the large
Vedic Grammar. The grammatical usage of the other Vedas,
when it differs from that of the Rigveda, is regularly ex¬
plained. The reference is given with precise figures when
syntactical examples are taken from the Rigveda, but with
abbreviations only (as TS. for Taittirīya Saṃhitā or ŚB. for
Śatapatha Brāhmaṇa) when they come from elsewhere.
Syntactical citations are not always metrically intact because
words that are unnecessary to illustrate the usage in question
are often omitted. The accent in verbal forms that happen
to occur in Vedic texts without it, is nevertheless given
if its position is undoubted, but when there is any uncer­
tainty it is left out. I n the list of verbs (Appendix I) the
third person singular is often given as the typical form even
when only other persons actually occur. Otherwise only
forms that have been positively noted are enumerated.
I ought to mention that in inflected words final s, r, and d
of endings are given in their historical form, not according
to the law of allowable finals (§ 27) ; e.g. dútás, not dūtáḥ ;
tásmād, not tásmāt; pitúr, not p i t ú ḥ ; but when used
syntactically they appear in accordance with the rules of
Sandhi ; e. g. devā́nāṃ dūtáḥ ; vṛtrásya vadhā́I.
The present book is to a great extent based on my large
Vedic Grammar. I t is, however, by no means simply an
abridgement of that work. For besides being differently
arranged, so as to agree with the scheme of the Sanskrit
Grammar, it contains much matter excluded from the Vedic
Grammar by the limitations imposed on the latter work as
one of the volumes of Bühler's Encyclopaedia of Indo­Aryan
Research. Thus it adds a full treatment of Vedic Syntax
and an account of the Vedic metres. Appendix I , moreover,
contains a list of Vedic verbs (similar to that in the Sanskrit
Grammar), which though all their forms appear in their

PREFACE

vii

appropriate place within the body of the Vedic Grammar, are
not again presented there in the form of an alphabetical list,
as is done here for the benefit of the learner. H aving
subjected all the verbal forms to a revision, I have classified
some doubtful or ambiguous ones more satisfactorily, and
added some others which were inadvertently omitted in the
large work. Moreover, a full alphabetical list of conjunctive
and adverbial particles embracing forty pages and describing
the syntactical uses of these words has been added in order
to correspond to § 180 of the Sanskrit Grammar.

The

present work therefore constitutes a supplement to, as well
as an abridgement of, the Vedic Grammar, thus in reality
setting forth the subject with more completeness as a whole,
though in a comparatively brief form, than the larger work.
I may add that this grammar is shortly to be followed by
a Vedic Reader consisting of selected hymns of the Rigveda
and supplying microscopic explanations of every point on
which the elementary learner requires information. These
two books will, I hope, enable him in a short time to become
an independent student of the sacred literature of ancient
India.
For the purposes of this book I have chiefly exploited
my own Vedic Grammar (1910), but I have also utilized
Delbrück's Altindische Syntax (1888) for syntactical material,
and Whitney's Roots (1885) for the verbal forms of the
Brāhmaṇa literature. I n describing the metres (Appen­
dix I I ) I have found Oldenberg’s Die Hymnen des Rigveda
(1888), and Arnold's Vedic Metre (1905) very useful.
I am indebted to Dr. James Morison and to my former
pupil, Professor A. B. Keith, for reading all the first proofs
with great care, and thus saving me from many misprints
that would have escaped my own notice. Professor Keith
has also suggested important modifications of some of my
grammatical statements. Lastly, I must congratulate

Mr. J. C Pembrey, Hon. M. A., Oriental Reader at the
Clarendon Press, on having completed the task of reading
the final proofs of this grammar, now all but seventy years
after correcting Professor H. H. Wilson's Sanskrit Grammar
in 1847. This is a record in the history of Oriental, and
most probably of any, professional proof reading for the
press.

The linguistic material of the Rigveda. represents the earliest stage. or the language of the literature of the Vedas. The language of the works forming appendices to the Brāhmaṇas. forms a transition to that of the Sutras. The prose of these works. to some extent represents better than the language of the M antras the normal features of Vedic syntax. which in the latter is somewhat interfered with by the exigences of metre. the hymns and spells addressed to the gods. considerably supplemented from the other Saṃhitās. in each of which. approximating to the stage of Classical Sanskrit. The grammatical forms of the Brāhmaṇas. is represented by two main linguistic strata. where they differ from those of Classical Sanskrit. Of these the Rigveda.CHAPTER I PHONETIC INTRODUCTION 1.

I t is described in the RV. Pāṇini and his school . Ancient pronunciation. The internal evidence supplied by the phonetic changes occurring in the language of the texts themselves and the external evidence of comparative philology justify us in concluding that the pronunciation in the period of the Saṃhitās was practically the same as in Pāṇini's time. the ancient phonetic works dealing with the Saṃhitās. we have a sufficiently exact knowledge derived from the transcription of Sanskrit words in foreign languages. The simple vowels ī̆‚ ū̆ and a were pronounced as in Italian. the close pronun­ ciation was already becoming general. The vowels. As regards the pronuncia¬ tion prevailing about 500 B. however. from the information contained in the old grammarians. Prātiśākhya . at the time when the Saṃhitā text was constituted. I t is. somewhat like the sound in the final syllable of the French chambre. But ă in the time of the Prātiśākhyas was already sounded as a very short close neutral vowel like the u in English but. was in the Saṃhitās pronounced as a vocalic r. Visaṛjanīya may take the place of the latter two. especially Greek . The following few remarks will therefore suffice on the subject of pronunciation : 1.). probable from the fact that the metre hardly ever admits of ă being elided after e and o in the RV. that at the time when the hymns were composed the pronunciation of ă was still open.gutturals (k. now usually sounded as r i (an early pro­ nunciation as shown by the confusion of ṛ and r i in ancient inscriptions and MSS. of the occurrences. kh).). The only possible exceptions are a very few doubtful points.

sū­yá­te is pressed (√su) . But that they represent the original genuine diphthongs ăi and ău is shown by the fact that they are produced in Sandhi by the coalescence of a with i and u. gū–ḍnáforguh­tá (15. janī­yánt desiring a wife (jáni) . u often become long before v . 2 . d. c. 2 a a 1 A term used i n the Prātiśākhyas and meaning ‘ vowel-part '. e. śrudhī hávam hear our prayer. ā́–vidh­yat he wounded (a is augment) . g.as containing an r in the middle. e. g. b. the equivalent of ṛ in Old Iranian. gnā́ = g nā́ woman. 2 k) . i . g. now usually pronounced as l r i . the metre shows that a very short vowel must often be pronounced between them . ji­gī­vā́ṃs having conquered ( √ji) . e.

Prātiśākhya as corresponding to l representing an original r. Described by the Prātiśākbyas as equal to ^.

e. Loss of vowels. With very few exceptions the only
vowel lost is initial a which, in one per cent. of its occurrences
in the RV. and about 20 per cent. in the AV. and the metrical
portions of the YV., is dropped in Sandhi after e and o.
In a few words the disappearance of initial a is prehistoric ;
e. g. ví bird (Lat. avi­s) ; sánti they are (Lat. sunt),

fi. Hiatus. I n the written text of the Saṃhitās hiatus,
though as a rule tolerated in diphthongs only, appears in
Sandhi when a final s, y, v has been dropped before
a following vowel ; when final ī, ū, e of dual endings are
followed by vowels ; and when a remains after final e
and o.
Though not written, hiatus is common elsewhere also in
the Saṃhitās : y and v must often be pronounced as i and u,
and a long vowel or diphthong as two vowels, the original
vowels of contractions having often to be restored both
within a word and in Sandhi; e.g. jyéṣṭha mightiest as
jyá­iṣṭha ( = jyā́­iṣṭha from jyā be mighty).
2. Consonants. a. The aspirates were double sounds,
consisting of mutes followed by a breathing ; thus k­h is
pronounced as in ' ink­horn ' ; t­h as in ' pot­house ’ ; p­h as
in ' top­heavy ' ; g­h as in ' log­house ' ; d­h as in ' mad­house ’;
b­h as in ' Hob­house ’.
b. The gutturals were no doubt velars or sounds pro­
duced by the back of the tongue against the soft palate.
They are described by the Prātiśākhyas as formed at the
' root of the tongue ' and at the ' root of the jaw ’.
c. The palatals c, j , ch are pronounced like ch in ' church ',
j in ‘join’, and ch in the second part of ‘Churchill‛.
d. The cerebrals were pronounced somewhat like the
so-called dentals t, d, n in English, but with the tip of
the tongue turned farther back against the roof of the
mouth. They include the cerebral ḷ and l h which in
Rigvedic texts take the place of ḍ and ḍh between vowels.
The latter occurs medially only; the former finally also.

Examples are: íḷā refreshment; turā­ṣā́ ḷ abhi­bhūtyójāḥ ;
á­ṣāḷha invincible.
e. The dentals in the time of the Prātiśākhyas were
post-dentals, being produced by the tongue, according to
their description, at the ' root of the teeth ' (danta-mūla).
f. The class nasals are produced with organs of speech
in the same position as for the formation of the correspond­
ing mutes while the breath passes through the nose.
The pure nasal, when called Anunāsika, combines with the
preceding vowel to form a single sound, a nasalized vowel,
as in the French 'bon'; when called Anusvāra (aftersound), it forms in combination with the preceding vowel
two successive sounds, a pure vowel immediately followed
by the pure nasal, though seeming to form a single sound,
as in the English 'ba-ng' (where, however, the nasal is
guttural, not pure).
g. The semivowel y is the voiced palatal spirant produced
in the same place as the palatal vowel 1. The semivowel v
is described by the Prātiśākhyas as a voiced labio-dental
spirant. I t is like the English v or the German w. The
semivowel r must originally have been a cerebral, as is
shown by its phonetic effect on a following dental n. By
the time of the Prātiśākhyas it was pronounced in other
positions also. Thus the RV. Prātiśākhya speaks of it as
either post-dental or produced farther back (but not as
cerebral).
The semivowel 1 is described in the Prātiśākhyas as
pronounced in the same position as the dentals, which
means that it was a post-dental.
h. The sibilants are all voiceless. The dental s sounds
like s in ' sin ’ ; the cerebral ṣ like sh in ' shun ’ (but with
the tip of the tongue farther back) ; while the palatal is
produced midway between the two, being the sibilant pro¬
nounced in the same place as the spirant in the German
ich. Though the voiced sibilants z, z (palatal — French j),

z, zh (cerebral) have entirely disappeared, they have generally
left traces of their former existence in the phonetic changes
they have produced.
i. The sound h was undoubtedly pronounced as a voiced
breathing in the Saṃhitās. The Prātiśākhyas describe it as
voiced and as identical with the second element of voiced
aspirates (g-h, d-h, b-h). This is corroborated by the
spelling ^ l-h ( = ḍh) beside ^O ḷ ( = ḍ).
j . There are three voiceless spirants appearing only as
finals. The usual one, called Visarjanīya in the Prātiśākhyas,
is according to the Taittirīya Prātiśākhya articulated in the
same place as the end of the preceding vowels. Its place
may be taken by Jihvāmūlīya before the voiceless initial
gutturals k, k n ; and by Upadhmānīya before the voiceless
initial labials p, ph. These two are regarded by the RV.
Prātiśākhya as forming the second half of the voiceless
aspirates kh and ph respectively (just as h forms the second
half of gh, bh, ^c.), They are therefore the guttural spirant
(Greek) ^ and the bilabial spirant f respectively.
k. Loss of consonants. This is almost entirely confined
to groups of consonants. When the group is final, all but
the first element, as a rule, is dropped in pausā and in
Sandhi (28). I n initial consonant groups a sibilant is often
lost before a mute ; e. g. candrá shining beside ścandrá ;
stanayitnú m. beside tanayitnú thunder; tāyú m. beside
stāyú thief; tṛ́ beside stṛ́ m. star; páśyati sees beside spáś
m. spy, ­spaṣ­ṭa seen. I n a medial group the sibilants s
and ṣ regularly disappear between mutes ; e. g. á­bhak­ta,
3. s. aor. for á–hhak­ṣ­ṭa beside á­bhak­ṣ­i. A mute may
disappear between a nasal and a mute ; e. g. yuṅ–dhí for
yuṅg­dhí.
a. Medially, voiced sibilants, the dental the cerebral z,
and the palatal z, have disappeared before the voiced dentals
d, dh, and h, but nearly always leaving a trace of their
former existence. Only in the two roots containing ā‚

ās sit, śās order, the sibilant has disappeared without a trace :
ā́­dhvam, śa-śā-dhi. But when a preceded the z the loss
of the sibilant is indicated by e taking the place of az ;
e. g. e­dhí (for az­dhí) from as be ; sed, perfect stem of sad
sit for sazd; similarly in de­hí give (for daz­dhí) beside
dad­dhí. When other vowels than a preceded, the ^ was
cerebralized and disappeared after cerebralizing the follow­
ing dental and lengthening the preceding vowel ; thus
á­sto­ḍhvam ( = á­stoz­ḍhvam for á­sto–s–dhvam) 2. pl.
aor. beside á­sto­ṣ­ṭa ; similarly mīḍhá n. reward (Gk.
^o­^o­^), Similarly the old voiced palatal z disappeared after
cerebralizing a following d or dh and lengthening the
preceding vowel ; e. g. tā­ḍhi for taz–ḍhi ( = tak­ṣ­dhi) from
takṣ fashion ; ṣo­ḍhā́ for ṣaṣ­dhā́ ( = sak–ṣ–dhā́) beside
ṣaṣ­ṭhá sixth. Still commoner is the loss of the old aspirated
palatal zh represented by h, which was dropped after
cerebralizing and aspirating a following t and lengthening
the preceding vowel ; e. g. sā–ḍhṛ for sáh­tṛ conqueror from
sah ; gūḍhá concealed for guh­tá (from guzh­tá).
l. H aplology. When two identical or similar syllables
are in juxtaposition, one of them is sometimes dropped ;
e. g. tuvī–rá[va]–vān roaring mightily beside tuvī­ráva ;
ir[adh]ádhyai inf. of iradh seek to win; ma­dúgha m.
a plant yielding honey, beside madhu­dúgha shedding sweet­
ness ; śīrṣa-[sa]ktí I. headache.

CHAPTER I I
RULES OF SANDH I OR EUPH ONIC COMBINATION
OF SOUNDS
16. Though the sentence is naturally the unit of speech,
which forms an unbroken chain of syllables euphonically
combined, it is strictly so only in the prose portions of the
A V and the YV. But as the great bulk of the Vedas is
metrical, the editors of the Saṃhitā text treat the hemistich
(generally consisting of two Pādas or verses) as the euphonic
unit, being specially strict in applying the rules of Sandhi
between the verses forming the hemistich. But the evidence
of metre supported by that of accent shows that the Pāda is
the true euphonic unit. The form which the final of a word
shows varies according as it appears in pausā at the end of
a Pāda, or in combination with a following word within the
Pāda. With the former is concerned the law of finals in
pausā, with the latter the rules of Sandhi. Avoidance
of hiatus and assimilation are the leading principles on
which the rules of Sandhi are based.
Though both are in general founded on the same phonetic
laws, it is necessary, owing to certain differences, to dis­
tinguish external Sandhi, which determines the changes
of final and initial letters of words, from internal Sandhi,
which applies to the final letters of verbal roots and
nominal stems when followed by certain suffixes and
terminations.
a. The rules of external Sandhi apply with few exceptions
(which are survivals from an earlier stage of external Sandhi)
to words forming compounds, and to final letters of nominal
stems before the case­endings beginning with consonants
(­bhyām ­bhis, ­bhyas, ­su) or before secondary (182, 2)
suffixes beginning with any consonant except y.

A. External Sandhi.
Classification of Vowels.
17. Vowels are divided into
A. 1. Simple vowels : a ā ; i ī ; u ū ; ṛ ṝ ; ḷ.
2. Guṇa vowels : a ā ; e
o
ar al.
3. Vṛddhi vowels: ā ; ai ; au ; ār.
a. Guṇa (secondary duality) has the appearance of being
the simple vowel strengthened by combination with a pre­
ceding a according to the rule (19a) of external Sandhi
(except that a itself remains unchanged) ; Vṛddhi (increase),
of being the Guṇa vowel strengthened by combination with
another a.
B. 1. Vowels liable to bechangedinto semivowels : i , ī ;
u, ū ; ṛ^ and the diphthongs e, ai, o‚ au (the latter half of
which is i or u) : consonantal vowels.
2. Vowels not liable to be changed into semivowels (and
only capable of coalescence) : a, ā : unconsonantal vowels.

Combination of Final and Initial Vowels.
IS. I f the same simple vowel (short or long) occurs at
the end of one word and the beginning of the next,
contraction resulting in the long vowel is the rule in the
written text of the Saṃhitās. Thus ihā́sti = ihá asti ;
índrā́ = índra ā́ ; tvāgne = tvā agne ; vtdám = ví idám ;
sūktám = su uktám.

1

The Vṛddhi form of ḷ (which would be āl) does not occur.
I n this vowel gradation, as Comparative Philology shows, the
Guṇa vowel represents the normal stage, from which the simple
vowel was reduced by loss of accent, while Vṛddhi is a lengthened
variety of Guṇa (5 a). The reduction of the syllables ya, va, ra (which
are parallel w i t h the Guṇa stage) to the corresponding vowels i‚ u, ṛ
(5 b) is termed Samprasāraṇa (distraction).
ṝ never appears under conditions rendering i t liable to be changed
into r (cp. 4 a, p. 4).
ṝ does not occur because ṛ ṛ never meet i n the Saṃhitās, and final
ṛ does not even occur i n the RV.

a. The contraction of ā + a and of ū̆ + ū̆ occasionally does
not take place, even in the written text of the RV., both
between the Pādas of a hemistich and within a Pāda ; thus
manīṣā́ , agníḥ ; manīṣā́ abhí ; vīḷū́ u t á ; sú ūrdhváḥ ;
and in a compound, su­ūtáyaḥ.
b. On the other hand, the metre requires the contracted
vowels of the written text to be restored in pronunciation.
I n such cases the restored initial is long by nature or
position, while the preceding final, if long, must be shortened.
Thus cāsā́t is pronounced as ca āsā́t ; cārcata as ca arcata ;
mā́péḥ as mā́ āpéḥ (for mā́ āpéḥ) ; mṛḷatīdṛ́ ś e as mṛḷati
īdṛ́śe ; yántī́ n davaḥ as yánti índavaḥ ; bhavantūkṣáṇaḥ
as bhavantu ukṣáṇaḥ. When the first word is a mono­
syllable (especially ví or hí), the written contractions ī and
ū are usually to be pronounced with hiatus ; thus hlndra as
hí índra.
19. a and ä
a. coalesce with the simple vowels ī̆ and ū̆ to the Guṇa
vowels e and o respectively ; e. g. ihéha — ihá iha ;
pitéva = pitā́ iva ; ém = ā́ īm ; óbhā́ = ā́ ubhā́.’ They
are never contracted to ar in the written text of the R v or
VS. ; hut the metre shows that the combination is sometimes
to he pronounced as ar, for instance in the compound
sapta­ṛṣáyaḥ the seven seers = saptarṣáyaḥ.
1

Because of the prosodical rule that a long vowel is always
shortened before another vowel. Cf. note 5.
Occasionally ā 4­ i remain uneontracted i n the written text of
the RV., as jyā́ iyám, pibā imám, raṇayā ihá.
3 This contraction is a survival because é and ö are simple long
vowels, but they were originally –­­­ ái, áu.
But i n many instances where the contraction is written, the
original simple vowels must be restored with hiatus ; thus subhágosā́ ḥ
= subhágā uṣā́ḥ.
ā is always shortened or nasalized before ṛ in the written text ;
e. g. tátha ṛ t ú ḥ (for t á t h ā ) ; vipanyā́ m ṛtásya (for vipanyā́ ) .
2

4

b. coalesce with Guṇa vowels to Vṛddhi ; e. g. áibhiḥ
= ā́ ebhiḥ.
c. are absorbed by Vṛddhi vowels ; e. g. sómasyauśijáḥ
— sómasya auśijáḥ.
20. The simple consonantal vowels ī̆ and ū̆ before dis­
similar vowels or before diphthongs are regularly changed
to the semivowels y and v respectively in the written text
of the Saṃhitās ; e. g. práty āyam — práti ayam ; jánitry
ajījanat = jánitrī ajījanat ; ā́ tv éta = ā́ tú étā. But the
evidence of the metre shows that this y or v nearly always
has the syllabic value of :t or ú. Thus vy ùṣā́ḥ must be
read as ví uṣā́ḥ ; vidátheṣv añján as vidátheṣu añján.
a. Final ṛ (which does not occur in the RV.) becomes r
before a dissimilar vowel ; an example is vijñātr ètát —
vijñātṛ́ etát (ŚB.).
21. The Guṇa vowels e and o
a. remain unchanged before a.’ which is generally elided
in the written text of the Saṃhitās, but according to the
evidence of the metre, must almost invariably in the RV.,
and generally in the AV. and YV., be pronounced.’ whether
written or not. I n devā́so aptúraḥ (1. 3^) the a is both
1

a instead of contracting with e is sometimes nasalized before i t :
aminantaṁ évaiḥ (for a e) ; upásthām ékā (for ā e). Again á is
sometimes elided before e and o ; as úp'sṣatu (for a e), yáth'ohiṣe
(for ā 0 ) .
Because ī and ū are prosodically shortened before a following
vowel (p. 22, note 1).
The exceptional treatment of e i n stótava ambyām for stótave
ambyām is a survival showing that the Sandhi of e and 0 before a
was originally the same as before other vowels.
I n the RV. i t is elided i n about 75 per cent., i n the A v . i n about
66 per cent. of its occurrences.
I n the RV. i t must be pronounced i n 99 per cent., i n the A v . and
the metrical parts of the Y v . i n about 80 per cent. of its occurrences.
The frequent elision of the a i n the written text compared with
its almost invariable retention in the original text of the RV., indicates
a period of transition between the latter and the total elision of the
post-vedic period.

written and pronounced ; in sūnávé ’gne (i. 1^) it must be
restored as sūnáve l ágne.
b. before every other vowel (or diphthong) would naturally
become ay and av (the form they assume within a word),
but the former drops the semivowel throughout, while the
latter does so only before ū̆ ; e. g. agna ihá (for agnay) ;
vā́ya ukthébhīḥ (for vāyav) ; but vāyav ā yāhi.
22. The Vṛddhi vowels ai and au are treated before
every vowel (including a) or diphthong exactly in the same
way as e and o before vowels other than a. Thus ai
becomes ā (through āy) throughout, but au only before ū̆
(through āv) ; e. g. tásmā akṣī́ (for tásmāy), tásmā índrāya ;
sujihvā́ úpa (for sujihvā́v), but tā́v ā́, tā́v indrāgnī.
a. The (secondary) hiatus caused by the dropping of y
and v in the above cases (21 b and 22) as a rule remains.
But further contraction is sometimes actually written in the
Saṃhitās ; e. g. sártavā́ j áu for sártavā́ ājáu (through
sártavāy for sártavái) ; vāsáu for vā asáu (through vā́y
for vái). Sometimes, again, the contraction, though not
written, is required by the metre. Thus ta indra must be
pronounced as tendra, and goṣṭná úpa (AV.) for goṣṭhé úpa
(through goṣṭháy) as goṣṭhópa.
1

Irregular Vowel Sandhi.
23. Vṛddhi instead of Guṇa results from the contraction of
a. the preposition ā (in the AV. and VS.) with initial ṛ
in ārti = ā ṛ t i and in ārchatu — ā ṛchatu. I n the case of
the 1atter verb, the TS. extends this contraction to prepositions
ending in a : úpārchati = úpa ṛchati and avārcháti =
ava ṛcháti.
1

Because e and 0 were originally = ái and áu.
This is also the sandhi of the AB. and K B .

b. The preposition prá (in the RV.) with initial i in
práiṣayúr = prá isayúr.
c. The augment a with the initial vowels i , u, r ; e. g.
áichas 2. s. impf. of is wish ; áunat 3. s. impI. of ud wet ;
ārta 3. s. aor. of ṛ go.

Absence of Vowel Sandhi .
24. The particle u is unchangeable^ in pronunciation
before vowels, though as a rule written as v after a con­
sonant ; e. g. bnā u aṃśáve, but ávéd v índra. When it
combines with the final a of a particle to o, in ó — ā
u, átho = átha u, u.tó = utá u, mó = mā́ u‚ it remains
unchanged even in the written text ; e. g. átho índrāya.
25. a. The ī and ū of the dual (nom. acc.) never change
to y and v. This dual ī is never to be pronounced short,
but the ū sometimes is ; e.g. hárī (^ —) ṛtásya, but sādhu.
(— ^) asmai. This ī may remain before i‚ as in hárī iva,
but in several instances the contraction is written, as in
ródasīmé = ródasī imé, while in several others, though
not written, it must be pronounced.
b. The rare locatives singular in ī and ū are also regularly
written unchanged in the RV., but they seem always to be
treated as prosodically short.
c. The ī of the nom. plur. m. (of the pronoun asáu) amī́
is always given as unchangeable in the Pada text (amī́ iti),
but it never happens to occur before a vowel in the RV.
3

1

This is perhaps a survival of a prehistoric contraction of ā (the
original form of the augment) with i , u, r to āi, āu, ār.
The term applied by the native phoneticians to unchangeable
vowels is pragṛhya separated. Such vowels are indicated i n the Pada
text by an appended i t i . u is always there written i n its lengthened
and nasalized form as um i t i .
I t is occasionally written unchanged i n its lengthened form even
after a consonant, as tám ū akrṇvan.

A preceding vowel except a (even though Anusvāra
intervenes) as well as k, r, ṣ change dental s (followed by
a vowel, s, t, th, n, m, y, v) to cerebral ṣ ; e. g. from havís
oblation: havíṣ­ā inst. s., havī́ṃṣ­i nom. pl. ; cákṣus n.
eye : cákṣuṣ­ā inst. s., cákṣūṃṣ­i nom. pl. ; havíṣ–ṣu loc.
pl. ; sráj I. wreath : srak­ṣú loc. pl. ; gír I. song : gīr­ṣú
loc. pl. ; tí­ṣṭhati stands from sthā stand ; cákṣuṣ­mant
possessing eyes ; bhavi­ṣyáti will be from bhū be ; su­ṣvā́pa
has slept from svap sleep. But sarpíḥ (final) ; mánas­ā
(a precedes) ; us­rá matutinal.

a. The cerebralization of s regularly takes place i n the RV. initially
in verbal compounds after prepositions ending i n i and u‚ as well as i n
nominal derivatives from such compound verbs ; also after the preposi­
tion nís out ; e. g. ní ṣīda sit down, ánu ṣṭuvanti they praise ; niḥ­ṣáha¬
māṇaḥ conquering.
b. I n nominal compounds, s is more usually cerebralized than not,
when the initial s of the second member is preceded by vowels other
than ā́ ; e. g. su­ṣóma having abundant Soma. But s is often retained i n
the RV., not only when ṛ or r follows, as i n hṛdi­spṛ́ś touching the heart,
rṣi–svará sung by seers, but also when there is no such cause to prevent
4

The s, however, remains i n forms of hiṃs injure, niṃs kiss, and
puṃs man, probably under the influence of the strong forms hinásti,
púmaṃsam, ^e.
words i n which s otherwise follows r or any vowel but ā must be
of foreign origin, as bṛ́saya a demon, bísa n. root fibre, busá n. vapour.
s remains when immediately followed by r or ṛ, e. g. tisrás, tisṛ́¬
bhis, tisṝṇā́m f. of tri three; usrás gen., usrí and usrā́m loc, beside
uṣar voc. dawn.
The s remains unchanged when followed by ṛ (even when t i n ­
tervenes) or r (even though a intervenes, with additional m or v in
smar remember and svar sound).

the change ; e. g. gó­sakhi beside gó­ṣakhi possessing cattle. After r the
s becomes ṣ i n svar­ṣā́ light winning, svār­ṣā́ t i f. obtainment of light.
o. Cerebralization is even extended to externa1 Sandhi i n initial
s after a final i and u in the RV. when the two words are syntactically
closely connected. This change chiefly takes place i n monosyllabic
pronouns and particles, such as sá, syá, sīm, sma, svid, and particu­
larly sú ; e.g. ū ṣú. I t also occurs i n numerous verbal forms and
participles ; e. g. yūyáṃ hí ṣṭhā́ for ye are, diví ṣán being in heaven. I n
other words the change is rare ; e. g. trī́ ṣadhásthā. I n the later
saṃhitas this form of external Sandhi is very rare except i n the
combination u sú.

68. The labial m remains unchanged before y, r, I (op.
60 and 42 B 1) ; e. g. yam­yámāna being guided, vam­rá m.
ant, ápa­mlukta concealed. But before suffixes beginning
with v it becomes n ; e. g. jagan­vā́ n having gone (from
gam go).
69. a. The breathing h becomes k in all roots before s ;
e. g. dhák­ṣi 2. s. pres. from dah burn : sak­ṣi 2. s. pres.
from sah prevail.
b. I n roots beginning with d it is treated like gh before
t, th, dh ; e. g. dah + tá = dag­dhá burnt (62 b), dun + tām
= dug­dhām 3. du. pres. Similarly treated is the oldest
form of the perf. pass. participle of the root muh : mug­dhá
bewildered.

c. h in all other roots is treated like an aspirate cerebral,
which after changing a following t, th, dh to ḍh and
1

I n the RV. occurs the sandhi yájuḥ ṣkannám (for skannám) with­
out cerebralization of the nn (cp. 65).

lengthening a preceding short vowel, is dropped ; e. g.
sah + ta — sā­ḍhá overcome ; r i h + ta = rī­ḍhá ticked ;
muh + ta — mū­ḍhá (AV.) bewildered; vah + ta = ū­ḍhá ; ­
vah + dhvám = vo­ḍhvám (VS.).’
d. An exception to e is the root nah bind, in which h is
treated as dh : nad­dhá bound. An exception to both b
and e is the root dṛh : dṛ­ḍhá firm (begins with d and has
a short vowel).

CHAPTER I I I
DECLENSION
70. Declension, or the inflexion of nominal stems by
means of endings that express the various syntactical rela­
tions represented by the cases, is most conveniently treated,
owing to characteristic difference of form, meaning, and use,
under (1) nouns (including adjectives) ; (2) numerals; (3) pro­
nouns.
In Vedic there are
a. three genders : masculine, feminine, and neuter ;
b. three numbers : singular, dual, and plural ;
e. eight cases : nominative, vocative, accusative, instru­
mental, dative, ablative, genitive, locative.’
1

I n all these past participles the ḍh is i n the RV. written as ḷh.
with Samprasaraṇa.
Through vazh­dhvam : azh here becoming o just as original as
(through az) becomes o (cp. 45 b).
Before this ḍ h the vowel ṛ never appears lengthened, but it is
prosodically long (cp. 8, note 2).
This is the order of the cases i n the H indu Sanskrit grammarians,
excepting the vocative, which is not regarded by them as a case. I t
is convenient as the only arrangement by which such cases as are
identical in form, either i n the singular, the dual, or the plural, may
be grouped together.

a. The vocative is the same (apart from the accent) as
the nominative in all numbers except the mase. and fem.
sing. of vowel stems generally and the masc. sing. of con­
sonant stems in ­an, ­man, ­van ; ­mant, ­vaut ; ­in ; ­as ;
–yāṃs, ­vāṃs ; ­tar.
b. The nom. acc. sing. has the bare stem excepting the
words in ­a, which add m.
c. The nom. voc. ace. plur. neut. before the ending i
insert n after a vowel stem and before a single final mute
or sibilant of a consonant stem (modifying the n according
to the character of the consonant : cp. 66 A 2).
72. An important distinction in declension is that between
the strong and the weak stem. I t is fully developed only
in derivative consonant stemsformedwith the suffixes ­añc,
­an, ­man, ­van ; ­ant, ­mant, ­vant ; ­tar ; ­yāṃs, ­.vāṃs.
I n the first four and in the last the weak stem is further
reduced before vowel endings. The stem here has three
forms, which may be distinguished as strong, middle, and
weakest.
a. Shift of accent was the cause of the distinction. The
stem, having been accented in the strong cases, here naturally
preserved its full form ; but it was shortened in the weak
cases by the accent falling on the endings. For a similar
reason the last vowel of the strong stem, if long, is regularly

shortened in the vocative, because the accent always shifts
to the first Syllable in that case.
73. The strong stem appears in the following cases :
Nom. voc. acc. sing.
Nom. voc. acc. dual
of masc nouns.’
Nom. voc. (not acc.) plur.
Nom voc. acc. plural only of neuters.
a. When the stem has three forms, the middle stem
appears before terminations beginning with a consonant
(bhyām, bhis, bhyas, su) ; the weakest before terminations
beginning with a vowel in the remaining weak cases ;
e. g. pratyáñc­au nom. du. ; pratyág­bhis inst. pl. ;
pratīc­ós gen. du. (93).
b. I n neuters with three stems, the nom. voc. acc. sing.
are middle, the nom. voc. acc. du. weakest; e.g. pratyák
sing. ; pratīc­ī́ du. ; pratyáñc­i pl. (93). The other eases
are as in the masc.
2

NOUNS.
74. Nominal stems are, owing to divergences of inflexion,
best classified under the main divisions of consonant and
vowel declension.
I . Stems ending in consonants 3 may be subdivided into
A. unchangeable ; B. changeable.
I I . Stems ending in vowels into those in A. a and ā ; B. i
and u ; C. ī and ū.
1

Excepting names of relationship i n ­tar (101), nearly all nouns
with changeable stems form their feminine with the suffix ­ī (100).
Changeable stems are named i n this grammar i n their strong and
original form, though the middle form would be more practical, inas¬
much as that is the form in which changeable stems appear as prior
member in compounds.
Some sanskrit grammars begin with the vowel declension i n a
( I I . A) since this contains the majority of all the declined stems i n
the language. But i t appears preferable to begin with the consonant
declension which adds the normal endings (71) without modification.

I . A. Unchangeable Stems.
75. These stems are for the most part primary or radical,
but also include some secondary or derivative words. They
end in consonants of all classes except gutturals (these having
always become palatals, which however revert to the original
sound in certain cases). They are liable to such changes only
as are required by the rules of Sandhi before the consonant
terminations (cp. 16 a). Masculines and feminines ending
in the same consonant are inflected exactly alike ; and the
neuters differ only in the acc. s. and nom. voc. ace du. and pl.
76. The final consonants of the stem retain their original
sound before vowel terminations (71) ; but when there is no
ending (i.e. in the nom. sing., in which the s of the m. and
f. is dropped), and before the ending su of the loc. pl., they
must be reduced to one of the letters k, t, t, p or Visarjanīya
(27) which respectively become g, ḍ, d, b or r before the
terminations beginning with bh.
a. The voc. sing. m. I. is the same as the nom. except in
stems in (derivative) as (83).
b. Forms of the nom. voc acc. pl. n. seem not to occur
in the Saṃhitās except in the derivative as, is, us stems,
where they are common ; e.g. ápāṃsī, arcī́ṃṣi, cákṣūṃṣi.

But i n the Brahmaṇas are found from –bhrt bearing, ­vṛt turning,
­hu­t sacrificing the N. pl. n. forms –bhṛ́nti, ­vṛnti, ­hu:nti.

1. Of the stems in t most are radical, nearly thirty of
them being formed with a determinative t added to roots
ending in the short vowels i , u, ṛ ; e.g. jí-t conquering,
śrú­t hearing, kṛ́­t making. Nearly all of them, however,
appear as the last member of compounds, except cít I. thought ;
dyú­t I. brilliance ; nṛ́t I. dancing ; vṛ́­t I. host. From sarva­
hu­t offering completely occurs in N. pl. n. the form sarva­
hunti in the AB. There are also a few derivative stems
formed with the suffixes ­vat, ­tāt, ­it, ­ut, and secondary
­ t ; e.g. pra­vát I. height, devá–tāt I. divine service; sar­ít
I. stream ; mar­út m. storm­god ; yákṛ–t n. liver, śákṛ-t n.
excrement.
2. There are only three stems i n th : kápṛth, n. penis,
páth m. path, abhi-śnáth adj. piercing.
3. a. About 100 stems end i n radical d, all but a few
being roots used as the final member of compounds ; e. g.
nom. adri­bhíd mountain­cleaving. Only eight occur as
monosyllabic substantives : níd I. contempt, bhíd I. destroyer,
víd I. knowledge, úd I. wave, múd I. joy, mṛ́d I. clay, hṛ́d n.
heart (used in weak eases only) ; and pád m. foot. The
latter lengthens its vowel in the strong eases :
Sing. N. pā́t. A. pā́d­am. I . pad­ā́ . D. pad­é. Ab.G.
pad–ás. L. pad­í.
Du. N.A. pā́d­ā. I . Ab. pad­bhyā́ m .
G.L. pad­ós.
Pl. N. pā́d­as.
A. pad–ás. I . pad­bhís. D. pad­bhyás.
G. pad­ā́m. L. pat­sú.
b. There are also six stems formed with derivative d
(suffixal –ad ­ud), seemingly all feminine : dṛṣ­ád and dhṛṣ–ád
nether millstone, bhas­ád hind quarters, van­ád longing, śar-ád
autumn, kak-úd summit, kāk-úd palate.
4. There are about fifty radical stems i n dh, simple or
compound. They are almost restricted to m. and I., no
distinctively n. forms (N. A. du. pl.) occurring and only four
forms being used as n. in the G. L. s. Seven stems appear

as monosyllabic nouns : vṛ́dh strengthening as a masc. adj .,
the rest as fem. substantives : nádh bond ; srídh foe ; kṣúdh
hunger ; yúdh fight ; mṛ́dn conflict ; vṛ́dh prosperity ; spṛ́dh
battle.

5. Radical stems i n n are formed from half a dozen roots.
Four of these are monosyllabic substantives: tánI.succession ;
rán m. joy ; ván m. wood ; sván adj. sounding. There are
also the compound adjectives tuvi­ṣván roaring aloud and
go­ṣán winning cows. H an slaying occurs as the final
member of at least thirty­five compounds, but as it follows
for the most part the analogy of the an stems, it will be
treated under these (92).
1

Stems i n Labials.
7S. These stems, which end in p, bh, and m only, are not
numerous. No neuters occur in the first two and only one
or two in the last.
1. A l l the monosyllabic stems i n p are fem. substantives.
They are: áp water, kṛ́p beauty, kṣáp night, kṣíp finger,
ríp deceit, rúp earth, víp rod. There are also about ā dozen
compounds, all adjectives except vi­ṣṭáp I. summit. Three
of the adjectives occur as I., the rest as m. ; e. g. paśu-tṛ́ p
m. delighting in cattle.

a. áp lengthens the stem in the N.V. pl. ā́p­as, a form
sometimes used for the A. also. The forms occurring are :
Sing.I. ap­ā́. Ab.G. ap–ás. Du. N. ā́p­ā. Pl. N.V. ā́p–as. A.
ap­ás. I . ad­bhís. D. Ab. ad­bhyás. G. ap­ā́m. L. ap­sú.
2. The six uncompounded stems i n bh are all I. substan­
tives : kṣúbh push, gṛ́bh. seizing, nábh. destroyer, śubh
splendour, stúbh praise (also adj. praising), and kakúbh peak.

There are also more than a dozen compounds : the substan­
tives are all I., the rest being m. or I. adjectives ; there are
1

The accent of these stems is irregular i n remaining on the radical
syllable (App. I I I . 11, 1), except tanā́ (beside tánā) and vanā́ m .

no neuters. The cases of tri-ṣṭúbn I. triple praise (a metre)
are : Sing. N. triṣṭúp. A. triṣṭúbh-am. L triṣṭúbh-ā. D.
triṣṭúbh–e.
Ab. triṣṭúbh-as.
L. triṣṭúbh-i ; Pl. A.
triṣṭúbh–as.
a. nábh lengthens its vowel in the N. pi. nabh-as.
A. nábh-as.
3. There are five or six monosyllabic stems i n m, and
one compound : śám n. happiness, dám n. (?) house, kṣám,
gám, jám I. earth, hím in. (?) cold ; saṃ­nám I. favour.

a. Gám and jám syncopate in the s. I.Ab.G. : gm­ā, jm­ā ;
gm–ás, jm­ás ; kṣám syncopates in the Ab. G. s. and
lengthens its vowel in N. du. pl. : kṣm­ás; kṣā́m­ā; kṣām­as.
Dám has the G. s. dán (for dám­s) in the expressions pátir
dán and pát1 dán = dám­patis and dám­patī lord of the
house and lord and lady of the house.

Stems i n Palatals.
79. The palatals (c, j , ś) undergo a change of organ when
final and before consonant terminations (cp. 63). e always
becomes guttural (k or g), j and ś nearly always become
guttural, but sometimes cerebral (ṭ or ḍ).
1. The unchangeable stems i n c when uncompounded
are monosyllabic and almost exclusively I. substantives.
Tvác skin, however, twice occurs as a m., and krúñc curlew
is m. Compounds, as adjectives, are often m., but only one
form occurs as a n., in the adv. ā–pṛ́k in a mixed manner.
Vā́c speech would be declined as follows :
1

Sing. N.V. vā́k.
A. vā́c­am (LaI. voc­em). I . vac­ā́.
D. vāc­é. Ab. G. vāc–ás. L. vāc­I.
Dual. N.A.v vā́c­ā, vā́c­au. I . vā́g­bhyā́m.
Plur. N.V. vā́c­as. A. vā́c­as (rarely vāc­ás). I . vāg­bhís.
D.Ab. vāg­bhyás. G. vāc­ā́m.
Stems i n derivative añc are changeable (93).

1

Similarly declined are :—tvác skin ; sic hem ; rúc lustre,
súc flame, srúc ladle ; ṛ́c stanza, mṛ́c injury ; ni­mrúc

sunset and other compounds. Krúñc forms its N. s. krúṅ,
du. krúñcau.
2. There is only one stem i n ch, formed from the root
pṛch ask : N. du. m. bandhu­pṛ́ch­ā asking after kinsmen ;

also the D. and A. infinitive forms pṛch–é to ask, sam­pṛ́ch–e
to greet ; vi­pṛ́ch­am and sam­pṛ́ch­am to ask.
3. a. Uncompounded radical stems i n j are mostly I.
substantives ; but áj driver, víj stake at play are m., and
2

yúj, rā́j, bhrā́j are m. as well as I. Neut. forms occur in
compound adjectives, but never the distinctively n. endings
of the N.A.V. du. and pl.
When the j is derived from a guttural, i t becomes a
guttural in the N. s. and before consonant endings ; when
derived from an old palatal, it becomes a cerebral in the
N. s. and before consonants, but k before the su of
the L. pl.
Thus in the N. ū́rk (ū́rj) vigour ; nir­ṇík (nir­ṇíj) bright
garment; but bhrā́ ṭ m. shining (bhrā́j), rā́ṭ m. king, I.
mistress ; L .pl.srak­ṣú garlands (sráj), pra­yák­ṣu offerings
(pra­yáj).

^. The N. of ava­yā́j f. share of the sacrificial oblation and of ā́vayaj m.
priest who offersthe oblation is anomalous in dropping the j and adding
the s of the nom. : ava­yā́s, ā́vayās (cp. 28^).

b. There are seven m. and I. adj. or subst. formed with
the suffixes ­aj and ­ij : á­svapn­aj sleepless, tṛṣṇ­áj thirsty,
1

From vyac extend occurs the strong form uru­vyáñcam far extend¬
ing, and from sac accompany only the strong forms A. ­sā́c­am, and N. pl.
­sā́c­as.
This word meaning companion also has a nasalized form i n
N.A. s. du. : y ú ṅ (for yúṅk), yúñj–am, yúñj­ā.
But i n a Brāhmaṇa ­bhāj sharing forms the N. pi. n. form ­bhāñji.
Except in ṛtv­ík from ṛtu­íj m. sacrificing in due season, priest (from
yaj sacrifice).

PersonaI Pronouns.

This class displays the greatest number of peculiarities :
they are for each person derived from several roots or
combinations of roots; they are specially irregular in
inflexion ; they do not distinguish gender, nor to some
extent even number. Some resemble neuters in form ;
a few have no apparent case­ending ; in two of them the
A. pl. m. does duty as I. also.

Demonstrative Pronouns.

110. The inflexion of these pronouns, as compared with
the nominal a declension, has the following peculiarities .
1. in the sing. d is added instead of m in the N.A. n. ;
the element sma appears between the root and the ending
in the D.Ab.L. m. n., and sya in the D.Ab.G.L. I. ; i n

The stem tá is frequently used i n derivation, especially that of
adverbs, as tá–thā thus ; the n. form tád often appears as first member
of a compound ; e. g. tád­apas accustomed to that work.

a. There are three other demonstratives derived from tá :

that occur are :

emphatic at the beginning of a Pāda. The form imásya occurs once
in the RV. instead of asyá ; and imasmai i n the AA. for asmai.

DEMONSTRATIVE PRONOUNS

109

112. The demonstrative corresponding to ayám employed
to express remoteness in the sense of that there, you, and
having in the N. s. the curious forms m. I. a­s­áu, n. a­d­ás,
uses throughout its inflexion the root a, but always in an
extended form. The fundamental stem used in every case
(except the N. s.) is a­m A. m. of a. This is extended by
the addition of the particle u to amu, which appears
throughout the sing. (with ū in A. I.) except the N. I n the
ph amu is the I. and amī́ the in. stem (except the A.).
The forms occurring are :

This stem is used i n derivation ; e.g. amú­tas thence, amú­tra there,
amú–thā thus (B.).
H ere the pronominal root a seems to be compounded with sa
extended by the particle u : a­sá­u and a­sā́­u.
This is the only example of sya being added to any but an a stem.
Used adverbially, with shifted accent.

meaning partly is also found i n B. The forms occurring are ..
sing. N. m. tvas, f. tvā‚ n. tvad. A. m. tvam. L m. tvena.
D. m. tvasmai, f. tvasyai.—Pl. m. tve.
^. The pronoun avá this occurs only i n the G. du. form avós i n
combination with vām meaning of you two being such (used like sa i n
sá tvám thou as such).
The pronoun á m a this occurs only once i n the AV. (also i n
the AB.) i n the formula ámo ’hám asmi this am 1.

C. Interrogative Pronoun.
113. The interrogative ká who? which? what? used as

both substantive and adjective, is inflected exactly like tá,
excepting the alternative neuter form kí­m.’ which instead
of the pronominal d has the nominal m (never elsewhere
attached to a stem in i). The forms occurring are :
m. Sing. ká­s. A. ká­m. I . kéna. D. ká­smai. Ab.
ká­smad. G. ká­sya. L. ká­smin.—Du. N. káu.—

a. I n derivation the stems k i and k u as well as ka are used ; e. g.
kí–y–ant how great ? kú­ha where ? ká­ti how many ?
As first member of a compound kad occurs twice : kat­payá greatly
swelling, kád­artha having what purpose ? k i m is similarly used a few
times i n the later Saṃhitās and the Brāhmaṇas; e.g. kiṃ­kará
servant.
b. ká­ya, an extended form of ká, occurring i n the G. only, is found
i n combination w i t h cid : káyasya cid of whomsoever.
1

From this pronoun are derived the I. and Ab. adverbs (with
shifted accent) amā́ at home and amā́dfrom near.
The N.s.m. is preserved as a petrified form i n ná­ki­s and mā́–ki­s
no one, nothing.

relative frequency of ká­d and kí­m is i n the RV. as two to
three.

Reflexive Pronouns.

115. a. The reflexive indeclinable substantive sva­y­ám
self is properly ^used as a N. referring to all three persons.
Sometimes, however, its N. nature being forgotten, it is

yénā is twice as common i n the RV. as yéna, but the Pada text
always reads yéna.
The Ab., formed according to the nominal declension, yā́d is used
as a conjunction.
y­o's for yá­y­0s like yuv­6s for yuvá­y­0s (p. 105, note 3).
Derived from svá with suffix am and interposed y (like a­y­ám
from a).
2

used as an A. ; e. g. áyuji svayáṃ dhurí I have yoked myself
to the pole ; or as agreeing in sense with another case. I t
occasionally means spontaneously.
b. tanū́ body is used in the RV. to express self in other
cases than the N. and in all numbers. The reflexive
pronoun svá and a possessive G. may be added ; e. g.
yájasva tanvám worship thyself and yájasva tanvāṃ táva
svām worship thine own self. The reflexive sense of tanú
has disappeared in B.
^t. There are one or two instances i n the RV. of the incipient use of
ātmán soul i n a reflexive sense ; e. g. bálaṃ dádhāna ātmáni putting
force into himself. The A. ātmā́ n am is frequently thus used i n the later
Saṃhitās (though never i n the RV.) and in B.

c. svá own is a reflexive adjective referring to all three
persons and numbers. I t is inflected like an ordinary
adjective (priyá) in the RV. (except the two isolated
pronominal forms svásmin and svásyās), The forms
occurring are :
m. Sing. N. svás (Lat. suus). A. svám. I . svéna and
svénā. D. svā́ya. Ab. svā́d. G. svásya. L. své
and svásmin (Rv),
PI. N. svā́s. A. svā́n. I . svébhis and sváis. D. své­
bhyas. G. svā́nām. L. svéṣu.
I. Sing. N. svā́ (Lat. sua). A. svā́m. I . sváyā. D.
svā́yai. Ab. svā́yās. G. svásyās (Rv). L. svā́yām.
PI. N. svā́s. A. svā́s. I . svā́bhis. L. svā́su.
n. Sing. N.A. svám (Lat. suum). Pl. A. svā́ (Lat. sua).
^. As first member of compounds svá several times appears i n the
substantive (as well as the adj.) sense ; e. g. svá­yukta self­yoked.
svayám is similarly used in the Saṃhitās ; e.g. svayaṃ­jā́ self­born.

F. Possessive Pronouns.
110. Possessive pronouns are rare because the G. of the
personal pronoun is generally used to express the sense
which they convey.

116--117]

PRONOMINA
L

COMPOUNDS

113

a. The possessives of the first person are máma­ka and
mama­ká my and asmā́­ka our. The forms occurring are :
Sing. D. mámakāya. G. mámakasya.
Sing. N. in. māmaká­s. n. māmaká­m. PI. G. m
nam.
Sing. N.A. n. asmā́ka­m.’
I . asmā́kena.
PI. N. m.
asmā́ k āsas. I . asmā́ k e­bhis.
1

The n. s. asmā́ k am, by far the commonest of these forms, is used as
the G. pi. of the personal pronoun = of us (109).
3

b. The possessives of the second person are tāva­ká thy
(only D. pi. tāvakébhyas), tvá thy (only I. pl. I. tvā́­bhis),
and yuṣmā́–ka your. Of the latter, three forms occur:
I . s. m. yuṣmā́kena, pl. I. yuṣmā́ k ā­bhis, and the N.A. n.
yuṣmā́kam used as the G. pi. of the second personal
pronoun — of you.
c. Besides being used reflexively svá is fairly often
employed as a simple possessive, generally of the third
person (like Lat. suus), his, her, their, but also of the second,
thy, your, and of the first, my, our. The inflexion (115 c) is
the same in both senses.
G. Pronominal Compounds and Derivatives.
117. With -dṛś in the RV. and other Saṃhitās, and
with ­dṛkṣa in the VS. are formed the following pronominal
compounds : ī­dṛ́ ś , ta­dṛ́ś, etā–dṛ́ś such, kī­dṛ́ ś what like ?
yā­dṛ́ ś what like ; ī–dṛ́kṣa, etā­dṛ́ k ṣa such.

The VS. has once the N. s. āsmāká­s our formed like māmaká beside
mámaka.

There are also a few reduplicated interjectional words. Both in the frequency and in the length of compounds the Vedic language resembles the Greek of Homer.

A further step towards unification is taken in a minority of cases in which the first member loses its accent and the last syllable of the final member (irrespectively of its original accent) receives the acute.

The most numerous group (about three­fourths of all the Dvandvas) in the Rigveda comprises those compounds (nearly always names of deities) in which each member is dual in form and has a separate accent .

The Gāyatrī stanza consists of three octosyllabic verses. Verse of eight syllables. yet i t has entirely disappeared i n Classical sanskrit. Even after every admissible vowel restoration a good many verses of this type exhibit the anomaly (which cannot be removed without doing violence to the text) of having one syllable too few . a. the third is almost invariably long. but there is no reason to believe that i n the original text the second verse was more sharply divided from the third than from the first. I n the opening the first and third syllable are indifferent. The vedic hymns consist chiefly of simple stanzas. 2. This occurs about as often i n the first verse of Gāyatrīs as i n the second and third combined. 3 1 Next to the Triṣṭubh this is the commonest metre i n the RV. while the second and fourth are preferably long. táṃ tuā vayáṃ pito. five.

The Avesta has a parallel stanza of 4 ^ 8 syllables. The Anuṣṭubh stanza consists of four octosyllabic verses. 3 The frequency of this metre is about one­third that of Gāyatrī i n the RV. Although i n these hymns the iambic cadence of the first verse is still the most frequent (25 per cent.

A comparatively rare but sufficiently definite variety of Gāyatrī differs from the normal type by having a decided trochaic rhythm in the cadence. while the iambic rhythm of the opening is more pronounced than usual .

The following is an example of a Paṅkti stanza :­– itthā́ hí sóma ín máde | brahmā́ cakā́ra várdhanam |^ śáviṣṭha vajrinn ójasā | pṛthivyā́ níḥ śaśā áhim | árcann ánu svarā́jiam || d. still more rarely i n the later hymns.
