137. Neuter adjectives (but not substantives) in xf u may take the forms proper to the masculine in the dat., abl.-gen., loc. sing., and gen. -loc. dual.
138. Changes of final Â«^ n. Before initial 91 j and ^ f, â€¢^ n becomes "5J n; thus, TfTt. 44Â«f I *V. tan jandn becomes <n- %HI"t. tdnjandn ; 7f[% ^T^l. ^ n PÂ°^ n = dlÂ»^I'^ , l s tan gatrun. In thÂ» last case, however, ^ch is almost always substituted for the initial TTT p; thus, fM'b^Â»4V ^ chatrun.
139. Final Â«^ n, before an initial Â«J /, is assimilated and becomes nasalized /, which is written ^f nl, or (what is the same thing) â€” n} thus <fT^ ^t^TTt tan lokdn becomes TfT^T *"Tl<*lÂ«l tdnl lokdn or Tfi Wt 5 BFTT s tan lokdn.
140. Before the surd palatal, lingual, and dental mutes there is inserted after final i^ n a sibilant of each of those classes respectively, before which if^ n becomes anusvara; thus for cfT 5 ^ ^T tan ca we find 7TP5T tdnc ca; for TTTt. WG\ tan talhd, <rNRTT *awÂ« tathd*
- r (rcchdti -- § 109) go to; fall to one's lot, fall upon.
- kram + a (AkrAmati) stride up to, attack.
- cam + A (AcAmati) sip, drink, rinse the mouth.
- tam (tamyati) be sad.
- tus (tusyati) rejoice, take pleasure in (w. instr.).
- dlv (divyatij play.
- This rule really involves an historic survival, the large ma-
jority of cases of final ^ n in the language being for original ns. Practically, the rule applies only to ^ n before ^ c and c^ t, since cases involving the other initials are excessively rare.
