Verbs and Participles

In this chapter, we will bring our study of verbs to a close. First, we will study three endings that we have avoided throughout this guide: the second-person dual ("you two"), the second-person plural ("you all"), and the third-person dual ("the two of them"). Next, we will study some very rare verb forms, one of which hardly ever appears in Sanskrit texts. Finally, we will study a fourth kind of participle. Moreover, we will give a quick look to how verb prefixes behave in Vedic literature.
