Participles in Rigvedic Sanskrit: The Syntax and Semantics of Adjectival Verb Forms
The Syntax and Semantics of Adjectival Verb Forms
This book examines the syntax and semantics of several thousand examples of tense-aspect stem participles in the Rigveda, one of the oldest extant texts in any Indo-European language. The author applies formal linguistic analysis to the data and produces a comprehensive formal model of how these participles are used.
