bent soft liG.mmmmmmmmm glosses glosses ^ M- C+ 1101

When the bent affixes replace the soft liG tense, they turn into --

sISTa''' sIyAstAm''' sIran'''

sISThAs''' sIyAsthAm''' sIdhvam''' *

sIya''' sIvahi''' sImahi'''

(* sIdhvam''' will sometimes turn into SIDhvam by iNaSSIdhva.)

(See bent soft liG rules if you are curious about which rules form these affixes.)

These affixes have no G label, therefore they do trigger hardsoft and puganta, unlike the other liG replacers. (The flat liG affixes, hard and soft, get G from yAsuTpa, the hard bent get G from hard apit is Git , and the soft bent do not get any G from anywhere.)

Example --

plu + @soft liG taplu + sISTa''' hardsoft plo + sISTa''' kric ploSISTa "may he jump"

Also, being soft affixes that do not start with yac, they will get iT after seT roots --

vRdh + @soft liG tavRdh + sISTa''' ArdhadhAtukasyeD vRdh + isISTa puganta vardh + isISTa kric vardhiSISTa "may he prosper"

flat soft liG.mmmmmmmmm glosses glosses ^ C- 1107

The nine flat tiG, when they replace soft liG, turn into --

yAt'''' yAstAm''' yAsus'''

yAs'''' yAstam''' yAsta'''

yAsam''' yAsva''' yAsma'''

The root will get no zap etc because these are soft, and will get no hardsoft or puganta because these are Git (by yAsuTpa). The affixes will never get iT because they start with y.

Examples --

bhU + @soft liG mipbhU + yAsam'''bhUyAsam "may I be"

bhU + @soft liG tipbhU + yAt'''bhUyAt "may he be"

luT replacements.mmmmmmmmm glosses glosses ^ M- C+ 1108

To make the luT verbs, add these after the root --

tA tArau tAras

tAsi tAsthas tAstha

tAsmi tAsvas tAsmas

tA tArau tAras

tAse tAsAthe tAdhve

tAhe tAsvahe tAsmahe

These are not luT replacers, but the tAs affix that follows the root, joined with the luT replacer. For instance, tAras is tAs plus jhi. The tAs affix will cause hardsoft or puganta of the root.

So, whenever I write --

plu + loT jhiplu + tAras hardsoft plotAras "they will jump"

that's just short for --

plu + loTplu + jhiplu + tAs + jhi hardsoft plo + tAs + jhi → .. → plotAras

As tAs is a valAdi soft, these will sometimes get iT --

bhU + loT jhibhU + tAras ArdhadhAtukasyeD bhU + itAras hardsoft bho + itAras ecoya bhavitAras "they will be"

budh + tAras ArdhadhAtukasyeD budh + itAras puganta bodh + itArasbodhitAras "they will realize"

If these doesn't get iT, sometimes the t of tAs will combine with the last consonant of the root --

dRz + tAras sRjidRzo draz + tAras vrazca;bhrasja draS + tAras STunA draSTAras "they will see"

budh + tAras puganta bodh + tAras jhaSastatho bodh + dhAras jhalAMjazjhazi boddhAras "they will realize"

chid + tAras kharica chit + tAras puganta chettAras "they will split"

formation of luTmmmmmmmmm glosses glosses ^ C+ 1109

When tAs is before a tiG, these rules might change the tiG --




and these rules might change the tAs --





tAs will combine with the root in the same way it combines with tavya tRc tumun, which are also non- kGit softs that start with t. So we have kharica in these four --

chid + tavya hardsoft ched + tavya kharica chettavya- "that should be split"

chid + tRc → .. → chettR- "splitter"

chid + tumun → .. → chettR- "to split"

chid + tAras → .. → chettAras "they will split"

split luTmmmmmmmmm glosses glosses ^ C- 1110

According to pANini, the expressions kartA, kartArau, kartAras, kartAsmas, etc, when they mean "he will make", "both will make", "they will make", "we will make", are verbs made by joining the root kR and the tense luT. So they are single words --

kR + luT tipkR + tA hardsoft kartA "he will make"

kR + luT mipkR + tAsmi hardsoft kartAsmi "I will make"

Now, you will have notice that the verbs kartA, kartArau, kartAras sound exactly like these nouns made with the tRc affix --

kartR- + sukartA "maker"

kartR- + aukartArau "two makers"

kartR- + jaskartAras "makers"

And that there is a sentence kartAsmi made from two words --

kartA + asmi akassa kartAsmi "I am the maker"

This is no coincidence, because sentences like jetAras "they will win" evolved historically from phrases made from jetR-, like jetAras "they are the winners", with change of meaning.

Yet, according to pANini rules, nowadays you may not use the nounbase jetR- to mean "will win". Thre noun jetA must mean "winner" and the verb jetA must mean "he will win". Therefore, the following sentences suck when you use them to mean "I will win" --

asmi jetA

ahaM jetA


jetA zatrum aham

I call those "split luT". They are not kosher, but you will find them sometimes in the epics --

tadA devAsure yuddhe jetAhanM tvAM zatakrato

"Then I shall defeat you in a war between devas and asuras, indra."

The nounbase jetR- can still be used kosherly to mean "winner". Unlike the luT verb, it agrees in gender with its doer --

jetrI sA "she's the winner, she has already won"

kRtaka-krIDanaka-kartR yantram "maker of plastic toys, 3D-printer"

and its object gets sixth, not second --

jetA zatror aham "I'm the conqueror of my enemy, I kicked his ass"
