Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1892 edition. Excerpt: ...too, yet a few remain in which developement has been regular, as anst unit dlnera anst 'with thy favour'). Compare von Bahder, Die Verbalabstracta, pp. 19 f.; Osthoff, Paul-Braune's Beitr., VIII 262.-i is found in a very few masculine words, as quidi ('law-suit'); see Kogel, Uber das Keron. Gloss, p. 158, and Osthoff, loc. cit. The usual masc. ending is-iu, which follows the io-stems (hirtitt hirtu), e. g. gust in. gastu; cp. the pronoun hiu in hiu-tu 'to-day' beside Goth, hi-mma as compared with diu from the stem dia-(II 4 p. 10, III 409, 421). In Lithuanian, the original formation is perhaps represented by dialectic forms such as dki from akl-s 'eye' Elsewhere the ending is-mi, as nakti-ml aki-ml ( 282); compare the pronoun manl beside maniml 449. In Slavonic, the datives pqti nosti are specimens of the old type, if we were right in conjecturing that they are instrumental ( 249 p. 150); compare pron. instr. ci (Mod.Slov. "if Czech, 'whether') beside i-to 'quid' ( 421). With instr. meaning we have masc. pqtl-mi ( 282), fem. nosttjq nostijq, the latter of which is an ad-formate of rqkojq ( 276 p. 180). 279. 5. J4-stems. Pr.Idg. silnil from sUnu-s 'son'. Avest. bdzu. Lat. manU, in which there has been a confluence of the instr. and the ablative in-ad ( 243 p. 141). O.Ir. biuth. Aryan. In both branches of Aryan we meet with a formation which is modelled upon consonant stems. Vedic: fem. and masc.-neut.: hdnv-a hdnuv-a Qidnu-f. 'jawbone') krdtv-a krdtuv-O, (krdtu-m. 'strength, will, understanding"), mddhv-S (mddhu-n. 'sweetness'). Of the same kind are instr. from masc. ta-stems which are used as gerunds, e. g. Sru-tvd orig. 'with the hearing', see II 108 p. 327....show more
