In this unit, we applied our basic system to the task of deriving Sanskrit verbs. We saw that the process has a few basic steps:

  1. Choose a dhātu from the Dhātupāṭha

  2. Choose the right lakāra

  3. Determine whether the root uses parasmaipada or ātmanepada endings

  4. Replace the lakāra with the appropriate tiṅ ending

  5. Add a vikaraṇa as needed

  6. Apply guṇa changes ar needed

  7. Apply sandhi rules

This unit focused on verbs created with laṭ-lakāra, but all verbs will follow this basic framework.
