Lesson 12: The Gerund
Answer the following question in the box below. (In addition, if anything in the video was unclear or you have any feedback about it, please provide it in the space below.)
- When can you use a gerund? (—i.e., what conditions need to be met for a gerund to be used?)
- What is the basic rule for the formation of gerunds? Why, apparently, is the -त्य suffix used (rather than -य) after a prefixed root ending in a short vowel?
- In internal sandhi what does च् become before consonants (except nasals and semivowels)?
- What are the 5 roots in this chapter that weaken by saṃprasāraṇa?
