Week 24. Makkomas-sūtras
24.1 Periphrastic future: like gantā-asi, agentive noun in -tā plus part of as, ‘to be’.
24.2 Auxiliary is dropped in all third-person forms.
24.3 Never use the word ‘gerundive’ (why?)
24.4 Future passive participles (FPPs) end in -tavya, -anīya (both easy) or -ya (hard).
24.5 How do you tell a gerund in -ya from an FPP in -ya? FPPs decline.
