Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1858 edition. Excerpt: ...ablative postposition is always employed to express ' comparison, ' see under comparison of adjectives at r. 304. LOCATIVE CASE. 275. This case is formed by the postpositions meg and par, which generally have the force of the English 'in, ' 'on, ' 'at, ' as expressive of many collateral ideas: thus, gha/r meg 'in the house;' bzig meg 'in the garden, ' rdh meg 'in the road, ' dunyd me_z 'in the world, ' gho.re pa/r 279. Par may even have the force of 'by reason of, ' 'in conse quence of;' as, imi dzimi-i par ' by reason of so much knowledge: ' or of ' according to, ' in such phrases as qadim qdide par 'according to his usual custom.' 180. It is used after nouns expressing ' time' and 'distance: ' thus, the_re dinog meg 'in a few days;' kos ek par 'at about a kos: ' see rr. 287, 290. 281. The locative sign men is used in expressing ' the matter' or ' subject' presented for consideration in some statement, descziption, or narrative: thus, ma/usim i baheir lei ta'r'if meg ' on the subject of the praises of spring;' bhainse ke auseif meg 'on the subject of the characteristics of the buffalo.' 282. The locative sign, like the genitive, may often be idiomatically omitted, but the oblique form of the noun, if any, is then used; as, daryzi kimire (for daryei ke kimire par) ' on the bank of a river;' kisi gdnw ke kimire 'on the borders of a village;' ek kimire ' on one side;' Hdtim ke waqt 'in the time of Hatim;' dzvmiish kc waqt ' at the time of trial;' bdshow more
