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. 1895 edition. Excerpt: ...for departing from it have not impressed me as valid. There is nothing to show that the Lith. a, Lett. 1 in the genitive singular (old ablative) cannot stand for I. E. 5 as well as in Lith. Iz/on! ' hedge, ' Lett. laire to tverizi, Lith. 'i-toka to teb' and hundreds of other noun--and verb---derivatives of the e-series. And I do not agree with Hirt. l.c. that until the conditions for the appearance of I.

IV, p. 476. analogy of-to (-tzid), and the-mu itself is probably formed from the suffix-ma-after the analogy of-m, as if this were from the suflix-to. The r of O. censamur is a further modification, after the other passive forms in-r. The Umbrian forms never had this-r. The Conjugations.
