Dative after the Verb., 194. All verbs in which a sense of imparting or communicating any thing to any object is inherent, may take an accusative of the thing imparted, and a dative of the object to which it is imparted. (Frequently, however, they take a genitive or even a locative of the object). gara FIGCATTI

Genitive after the V'erb. 196. The genitive, in Sanscrit, is constantly interchangeable with the dative, locative, or even accusative. It is more especially, however, used to supply the place of the first of these cases, so that almost all verbs may take a genitive as well as dative of the object to which any thing is imparted. For example, grigia Y Geifa,“ he gives money to the poor.” It may be used for the locative after verbs of “consigning "; as, fotad H HÀufa, “he deposits a pledge with me"; or, of “trusting "; as, a afya alui mata, “nobody puts trust in women "; and for the accusative, in examples such as, अचिन्तितानि दुःखानि आयानि देहिनां, “ unexpected ills come upon corporeal beings.

Locative after the Verb. 197. This case is very widely applicable, but, as elsewhere remarked, is frequently interchangeable with the dative and genitive. The first sense of the locative requires that it should be united with verbs, in reference only to the place or time in which any thing is done ; as, a Asla,“ he sinks in the mud "; y tafa, “he dwells in the city "; var fagfa, “he stands in the front of the fight "; 17 agua, “at sun-rise he awakes.” But the transition from the place to the object, or recipient of any action, is

* This vague use of the genitive to express various relations prevails also in early Greek.”

natural, and hence it is that verbs are found with the locative of the object to which any thing is imparted or communicated, as in the following examples : मा प्रयच्छ ईश्वरे धनं, “ bestow not money on the mighty "; after genfu fafanh, “I intrust my affairs to him"; पुत्रे अगुरीयकं समर्पयति, “he consigns a ring to his son"; योग्ये area mea TTTUTTİ, “he intrusts the burthen of the kingdom to a capable minister "; # A FACUTA,“ one should place (bury) a dead man in the ground "; YHT CUTfa,“ he applies his mind to virtue.” In this sense a is used ; as, yê PATH WRIT," he placed the wood on his back "; Afi utu olfat," he applies his mind to sin.”

a. When &T, “ to give,” is used for “to put," it follows the same analogy; as, तस्य पुछाये हस्तं देहि, “put your hand on the end of its tail;" भस्मचये पदं ददौ, “ he placed his foot on a heap of ashes.” Similarly, ara! yasfeen, “ he was held by the skirt of his garment.” So also verbs of " seizing," “striking," केशेषु गृह्णाति or आकृषति, “he or drags him by the hair"; मुम्ने प्रहरति, “he strikes a sleeping man.”

b.

s sit thou on a cushion”; शत्रुषु fayfafa, , “ he confides in his enemies”; arwurut: cafe, “it falls at his feet"; gofa meg, “it rolls at the feet.”


Change of Case after the same Verb. 198. This sometimes occurs ; as, विधुरो धृतराष्ट्राय कुन्ती च गान्धायाः सच्चे acuni, “ Vidhura and Kuntī announced every thing, the one to Dhritarăshtra, the other to Gāndhāri” (Astrashikshā 34. Ed. Prof. Johnson), where the same verb governs a dative and genitive. Similarly, in the Mitralábha (p. 10.), fui विश्वासो न कर्तव्यः स्त्रीषु च, “confidence is not to be placed in horned animals or women.”
