Ud-, (Vedic ud-; Goth. ūt = Ohg. ūz = E. out, Oir. ud-; cp. Lat. ūsque “from-unto” & Gr. u(ζteros = Sk. uttara) prefix in verbal & nominal combn. One half of all the words beginning with u° are combns. with ud°, which in compn. appears modified according to the rules of assimilation as prevailing in Pāli.—I. Original meaning “out in an upward direction”, out of, forth; like ummujjati to rise up out of (water), ujjalati to blaze up high; udeti to come out of & go up; ukkaṇṭha stretching one’s neck out high (cp. Ger. “empor”); uggilati to “swallow up”, i.e. spit out.—The opposites of ud- are represented by either ava or (see under II. & IV. & cp. ucc-âvaca; uddhambhāgiya: orambhāgiya), ni (see below) or vi (as udaya: vi-aya or vaya).—II. Hence develop 2 clearly defined meanings, viz. (1) out, out of, away from —: °aṇha (“day-out”); °agga (“top-out”); °āgacchati; °ikkhati look out for, expect; °kantati tear out; °khitta thrown off; °khipati pick out; °gacchati come out; °gamaṇa rising (opp. o°); °gajjati shout out; °gilati (opp. o°); °ghoseti shout out; °cināti pick out; °chiṭṭha thrown out; °jagghati laugh at, cp. Ger. aus-lachen °tatta smelted out; °tāna stretched out; °dāleti tear out; °dhaṭa lifted out, drawn out; °disati point out to; °drīyati pull out; °pajjati to be produced; °patti & °pāda coming out, origin, birth; °paṭipatiyā out of reach; °paḷāseti sound out; °phāsulika “ribs out”; etc. etc.—(2) up (high) or high up, upwards, on to (cp. ucca high, uttara higher) —: °kujja erect (opp. ava°); °kūla sloping up (opp. vi°); °khipati throw-up, °gaṇhāti take up; °chindati cut up; °javati go up-stream, °javana id. (opp. o°); uñña pride; °thāna “standing up” °ṭhita got up; °tarati come out, go up (opp. o°); °nata raised up, high (opp. o°); °nama e-levation; °nāmin raised (opp. ni°); °patati fly up; etc. etc.—III, More specialised meanings (from elliptical or figurative use) are: (1) ud° = without, “ex-”, e.g. unnaṅgala “outplough” = without a plough; uppabbajita an ex-bhikkhu. ‹-› (2) ud° = off, i.e. out of the way, wrong, e.g. uppatha a wrong road, ummagga id.—(3) ud° = out of the ordinary, i.e. exceedingly, e.g. ujjaṅgala extremely dusty; uppanduka very pale; uppoṭheti to beat hard.—IV. Dialectical variations & combinations.—(1) Owing to semantic affinity we often find an interchange between ud° and ava° (cp. E. break up = break down, grind up or down, tie up or down), according to different points of view. This wavering between the two prefixes was favoured by the fact that o always had shown an unstable tendency & had often been substituted for or replaced by ū, which in its place was reduced to u before a double consonant, thus doing away with the diff. between ū & u or o & u. For comparison see the foll. : ukkamati & okk°; uññā: avañña; uddiyati: odd°; uḍḍeyya oḍḍ°; uppīḷeti: opīḷ°; etc., & cp. abbhokirati › abbhukkirati.—(2) the most frequent combns. that ud° enters into are those with the intensifying prefixes abhi° and sam°; see e.g. abhi + ud (= abbhud°) + gacchati, °jalati; °ṭhāti; °namati etc.; sam + ud + eti; °kamati; °chindati; °tejeti; °pajjati etc. (Page 132)
