nayē (नये).—ad (na & yēṇē That will not come, i. e. be proper or advisable.) A particle mildly expressive of prohibition on account of impropriety or inexpediency. It follows the root of verbs prepared for it by the assumption of one of the affixes tāṃ & ūṃ. It has a plural form (nayēta) agreeing with the object of the verb if transitive, and with the subject if intransitive. Ex. tyānēṃ hēṃ kāma karatāṃ or karūṃ nayē; tyānēṃ hē āmbē khāūṃ nayēta He should not do this work, eat these mangoes &c. tyā bāyakā ēthēṃ basūṃ nayēta. N. B. The plural form is often disregarded and the ta omitted. And on the affixes tāṃ & ūṃ it may be observed here that they slightly differ; the sentence constructed with the first, prohibiting the act specified rather on account of its disadvantageousness or unprofitableness; and the sentence constructed with the second, prohibiting it rather on the ground of impropriety or wrongness. And further, the root with the affix tāṃ admits indifferently of myāṃ or malā, tvāṃ or tulā, tyānēṃ or tyālā &c.; whereas the root with the affix ūṃ suffers the agent only in the form myāṃ, tvāṃ, tyānēṃ.
