717. The class-sign

V. -class (ninth or krī-class).

The class-sign of this class is in the strong forms the syllable ना nā́, accented, which is added to the root; in the weak forms, or where the accent falls upon the ending, it is नी ; but before the initial vowel of an ending the ई ī of नी  disappears altogether.
