I have a question about the example of
why is na not dropped by ita using the Aadi chutu sutra?
nidi -> na i da im -> na should be off by sutra 7? Aadu chutu - why is that not the case?
dhatu 984 iiha
why is ha not dropped by applying halantyam it sanjya?
i am 2 weeks behind on account of travel homework and hence the delayed question.
Thank you for an energized approach to language - even i am newly excited about the language and might get it; the dressing up of the Dhatu seems exciting.
Hari Om Prasana ji,
1. Re णिदिँ ... Keep in mind that the सूत्र "चुटू" only applies to प्रत्ययs. We saw that it takes अनुवृत्ति from the word "प्रत्ययस्य" from the सूत्र "षः प्रत्ययस्य".
2. Re ईहँ ... we cannot drop ह using "हलन्त्यम्" because the ह is not at the end. Let's take a look at the आनुपूर्वी -- ई ह् अँ. So the ह is not at the end in the उपदेश. Thus, we cannot remove it. We can only remove अँ because of "उपदेशेऽजनुनासिक इत्". So even though it becomes ईह् after that, we cannot apply "हलन्त्यम्" now because it is no longer the उपदेश (ie directly what पाणिनि said).
Hope this clarifies.
All the best,
