640. The double so-called root

The double so-called root jakṣ eat, laugh is an evident reduplication of ghas and has respectively. It has the absence of n in act. 3d persons pl. and pple, and the accent on the root before vowel-endings, which belong to reduplicated verbs; and it also takes the union-vowel i in the manner of rud etc. (above, 631). For its forms and derivatives made with utter loss of the final sibilant, see 233 f.
