II. Meanings (1) ayaṃ refers to what is immediately in front of the speaker (the subject in question) or before his eyes or in his present time & situation, thus often to be trsld. by “before our eyes”, “the present”, “this here”, “just this” (& not the other) (opp. para), viz. atthi imasmiṃ kāye “in this our visible body” Kh III, ; yath’âyaṃ padīpo “like this lamp here” Sn. 235; ayaṃ dakkhiṇā dinnā “the gift which is just given before our eyes” Kh VII. 12; ime pādā imaṃ sīsaṃ ayaṃ kāyo Pv. I, 83; asmiṃ loke paramhi ca “in this world & the other” Sn. 634, asmā lokā paraṃ lokaṃ kathaṃ pecca na socati Sn. 185; cp. also Dh. 220, 410; J. I, 168; III, 53.—(2) It refers to what immediately precedes the present of the speaker, or to what has just been mentioned in the sentence; viz. yaṃ kiñci vittaṃ ... idam pi Buddhe ratanaṃ “whatever ... that” Sn. 224; ime divase these days (just gone) J. II, 416; cp. also Vin. I, 84; Sn. 429; J. II, 128, 160.—(3) It refers to what immediately follows either in time or in thought or in connection: dve ime antā “these are the two extremes, viz.” Vin. I, 10; ayaṃ eva ariyo maggo “this then is the way” ibid. ; cp. J. I, 280. ‹-› (4) With a touch of (often sarcastic) characterisation it establishes a closer personal relation between the speaker & the object in question & is to be trsld. by “like that, such (like), that there, yonder, yon”, e.g. imassa vānarindassa “of that fellow, the monkey” J. I, 279; cp. J. I, 222, 307; II 160 (imesaṃ sattānaṃ “creatures like us”). So also repeated as ayañ ca ayañ ca “this and this”, “so and so” J. II, 3; idañ c’idañ ca “such & such a thing” J. II, 5.—(5) In combination with a pron. rel. it expresses either a generalisation (whoever, whatever) or a specialisation (= that is to say, what there is of, i.e. Ger. und zwar), e.g. yâyaṃ taṇhā Vin. I, 10; yo ca ayaṃ ... yo ca ayaṃ “I mean this ... and I mean” ibid. ; ye kec’ime Sn. 381; yadidaṃ “i.e.” Miln. 25; yatha-y-idaṃ “in order that” (w. pot.) Sn. 1092. See also seyyathīdaṃ.—(6) The Gen. of all genders functions in general as a possessive pron. of the 3rd = his, her, its (lit. of him etc.) and thus resembles the use of tassa, e.g. āsava’ssa na vijjanti “his are no intoxications” Sn. 1100; sīlaṃ assā bhindāpessāmi “I shall cause her character to be defamed” J. I, 290; assa bhariyā “his wife” J. II, 158 etc. frequent (Page 75)
