Liṭ (लिट्).—An affix of the perfect tense; cf. परोक्षे लिट् (parokṣe liṭ) P.III.2.115 for which the specific affixes णल्, अतुस् उस् (ṇal, atus us) etc. are substituted after roots which take Parasmaipada affixes. Before the lit affixes, a monosyllabic root is reduplicated while dissyllabic roots and denominative and other secondary roots, formed by adding an affix to an original root,take the affix आम् (ām) after which all 'liț' personal endings are dropped and the forms of the roots कृ, भू (kṛ, bhū) and अस् (as) with the necessary personal-endings, are placed immediately after the word ending in आम् (ām), but often with the intervention of a word or more in the Vedic language and rarely in the classical language; cf. तं पातयां प्रथममास पपात पश्चात् (taṃ pātayāṃ prathamamāsa papāta paścāt); cf. कास्प्रत्यया-दाममन्त्रे लिटि (kāspratyayā-dāmamantre liṭi) P.III.I. 35 to 42.
