772. The roots tan and khan

The roots tan and khan usually form their passives from parallel roots in ā: thus, tāyáte, khāyáte (but also tanyatekhanyate); and dham, in like manner, makes eitherdhamyate or dhmāyáte. The corresponding form to √jan, namely jā́yate (above, 761 b), is apparently a transfer to the preceding class.
