1240. tvana. The derivatives made

त्वन tvana. The derivatives made with this suffix are, like those in tva, neuter abstracts. They occur almost only in RV., and, except in a single instance (martyatvaná), have beside them equivalent derivatives in tva. The accent is on the final, and the tva is never resolved into tuaa. The words are: kavitvaná, janitvaná, patitvaná (also JB.),martyatvaná, mahitvaná, vasutvaná, vṛṣatvaná, sakhitvaná.
