"Go out then to the fort," said his wife to Nera," and carry a bundle
of firewood with you."
DIL A 5, 71 says that "ass" (which is the preposition 'a' plus 3rd
singular neuter pronoun) is used with verbs of motion.
I wrote the dative singular 'dún' in imitation of 'ón dún' in part 6
line 4 and 'don dún' in part 7, line 4. Is this the o-stem neuter form? It
looked to me from the paradigms that the s-stem form might be 'dúin.'
I thought 'beir' was the 2d singular imperative of 'beirid' and 'eirc'
was the 2d singular imperative of 'téit.' Liz Gabay
