Lesson 6: The Imperfect
Answer the following questions 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.)
- What are the endings of the Imperfect called? (the English term, not the Sanskrit)
- Do our 2 rules for combining the present stem with personal endings apply to the Imperfect as well as to the Present?
Recite the paradigm of गम् below in the Imperfect, along with the recording until you can do it on your own. Focus on aspirating the aspirates and pronouncing the dentals on the teeth. While you’re practicing, you can also click on the individual forms below (e.g., अगच्छत्) to hone in on their pronunciation.
