630. Of the same roots

Of the same roots, īḍ and īç insert a union-vowel i before certain endings: thus, ī́çiṣeī́çidhveī́ḍiṣva (these three being the only forms noted in the older language); but RV. has ī́kṣe beside ī́çiṣe; the ÇvU. has once īçite for īṣṭe. The 3d pl. ī́çire (on account of its accent) is also apparently present rather than perfect. The MS. has once the 3d sing. impf. āiça (like aduha: 635).
