1) Sup (सुप्).—Locative case affix सुः (suḥ)
2) Sup.—Short term for case-affixes, as formed by the syllable सु (su) (the nom. sing. affix) at the beginning and the final consonant प् (p) of सुप् (sup), the locative plural case-affix in the rule स्वौजसमौट् (svaujasamauṭ)...ङ्योस्सुप् (ṅyossup) P. IV. 1.2. These case affixes are called 'vibhakti' also. These सुप् (sup) affixes are elided after an indeclinable word; cf. अव्ययादाप्सुपः (avyayādāpsupaḥ) P. II. 4.82; in Veda स्, शे (s, śe) (ए), या, डा, ड्या, याच् (yā, ḍā, ḍyā, yāc) and आल् (āl) as seen, are substituted for these case affixes, which sometimes are even dropped or assimilated with the previous vowel of the base; e. g. सन्तु पन्थाः, आर्द्रे चर्मन् (santu panthāḥ, ārdre carman) etc. cf, P. VII. 1.39. These caseaffixes are as a rule, grave-accented (अनुदात्त (anudātta)) excepting in such cases as are mentioned in P. VI.1. 166 to 184 and 191.
