Example text

In fact, it seems that his two works on bdag gzan and bya byed las gsum were of this latter sort. , we see some fundamental differences from the position of Si tu and dNul chu yab sras. If we look at Si tu's list of examples of "expressions for the [agent's] doing" (deï byed pa'i tshig), then it is clear that only present forms such as sgrub par byed and sgrub bo figure there. Similarly among the expressions for the thing-done to the [object] (de'i bya ba'i tshig), we find only future forms such as bsgmb par bya and bsgrub bo.

First of all, we find what is commonly 26 See n. 8. But cf. BACOPs examples in our n. 9. Frankly, one cannot help feeling that one of the major reasons people persist in thinking that bdag — ätmanepada is a fairly uncritical acceptance of BACOT: his pseudo-examples of intransitive and "middle" verbs which he terms bdag naturally make this equation all the more tempting.
