The paper deals with two questions of the Vedic augment. Firstly, the
Vedic forms with an apparently long syllabic augment are re-examined and the
conclusion is drawn that these forms are due to phonological and analogical
processes and do not form evidence in favour of an original long variant of the
syllabic augment. Secondly, the temporal augment of vowel-initial roots is
considered, which consists of the vrddhi of the initial vowel. An important
analogical support for this general Old Indian rule is pointed out, namely the
influence of those verbal stems that began with *Hei-, *Heu- or *Her-
and had full or lengthened grade roots in the preterit tenses and therefore had
phonetically regular vrddhi vowels in their augmented forms.
