Abstract:

This work investigates the form and function of the imperative in the
Rigveda. All of the forms of the imperative are covered from a
morphological, syntactical and semantic standpoint. There is a
comprehensive section on stem-ablaut and accentuation, as well as an
individual treatment of each verb ending. Special forms such as those in
-t?t and -si  have sections devoted to them, as do the modal aorist
injunctives.

The relationship between the present and aorist imperatives is discussed in
a completely new light.  The aorist imperative is shown to be a moribund
archaism at the time of the Rigveda - more so in the late tenth book -
which functions as a metrical variant of the present imperative, with no
functional difference existing between the two forms. An exception to this
is fixed formulae, in which the ancient, pre-Vedic difference between these
forms is preserved.

Finally, in the index of attested forms, there is a treatment of every
attested imperative form in the Rigveda. All attested imperative forms are
noted, their grammatical classification, and their frequency. Many verbs
are discussed in detail, and copious examples from the text are given.
