Abstract:

This book is the first comprehensive study of the Vedic present formationswith the suffix 'ya' (' 'ya'-presents' for short), including both presentpassives with the accented suffix 'yá' and non-passive -'ya'-presents withthe accent on the root (class IV in the Indian tradition). It offers acomplete survey of all 'ya'-presents attested in the Vedic corpus. Themain issue in the spotlight of this monograph is the relationship betweenform (accent placement, diathesis) and function (passive/non-passive) inthe system of the 'ya'-presents - one of the most solidly attested presentclasses in Sanskrit. One of the aims of the present study is to corroboratethe systematic correlation between accent placement and thepassive/non-passive distinction: passives bear the accent on the suffix,while non-passives have the accent on the root. The book also focuses onthe position of the passive within the system of voices andvalency-changing categories in Old Indo-Aryan.
