Meaning of suffixes 2




I found this nice table on the meaning of verbal suffixes in Vācaspati Upādhyāya's edition of the Arthasaṅgraha. It nicely points out how the meaning of suffixes is not necessarily analized into distinct physical elements.
For those who might not read Sanskrit, the main point is that the verbal suffix of the optative (just like all other exhortative verbal suffixes) conveys two meanings (see image in the next post).
