It is demonstrated that of the three accent-types of reduplicated presents found in Vedic – type (1) bíbharmi ~ bibhṛmási, type (2) juhómi ~ juhumás, type (3) jáhāti ~ jíhīte – only type (1), lacking a secondary explanation, can be original, whilst for type (2) and (3) a secondary genesis is probable. The exceptional paroxytonic accentuation similar to that of type (2) found already in the RV and AV in the strong stem of verbs that otherwise belong to type (1), namely bibhárti (1x RV, 2x AV) and iyárṣi (1x RV), will be explained as part of a Late Vedic development.

Abstract

It is demonstrated that of the three accent-types of reduplicated presents found in Vedic – type (1) bíbharmi ~ bibhṛmási, type (2) juhómi ~ juhumás, type (3) jáhāti ~ jíhīte – only type (1), lacking a secondary explanation, can be original, whilst for type (2) and (3) a secondary genesis is probable. The exceptional paroxytonic accentuation similar to that of type (2) found already in the RV and AV in the strong stem of verbs that otherwise belong to type (1), namely bibhárti (1x RV, 2x AV) and iyárṣi (1x RV), will be explained as part of a Late Vedic development.
