831. Aorists of the same class

But aorists of the same class are also made from a number of roots in , and a few in i- and u-vowels (short or long) — with, as required by the analogy of the tense with an imperfect of the root-class, guṇa-strengthening in the three persons of the singular.

a. Thus (in the active), from √çruáçravam and áçrot; from √çriáçres and áçret; from √kṛ makeákaram and ákar (for akars and akart); from vṛ encloseā́var (585 a); and so ástar, aspar. Dual and plural forms are much less frequent than singular; but for the most part they also show an irregular strengthening of the root-vowel: thus (including augmentless forms), ákarma and karma and ákartavartamspartamáhema and áhetanabhemaaçravan; regular are only avran, ákran, ahyan, and áçriyan.
