Hoti (होति).—(= Pali id.), for Sanskrit bhavati, see Chap. 43, s.v. bhū (2). The pres. hoti is rare compared to bhoti; on the other hand, in futures of the hohiti (hohati) type, ho- is much commoner than bho-; and it is doubtful whether bhoṣyati (instead of bheṣyati) should be recognized at all as fut.

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!).
