An Explanation on the Grammatical Case of the Zraii? Vouruka?aiia (Yt.8.8.)



It has long been supposed that zraiia vouruka?aiia (in Yt.8.8) could be a locative singular form of the zraiiah- and vouruka?a- stems. I shall attempt to show here that this explanation is incorrect. There are, however, several good pieces of evidence in the above- mentioned Avestan text that lead us to propose another reasonable explanation on this grammatical issue.
