Not sure what your are referring to, when you say justification and split. Perhaps
you want the conjugation?

thanks Eddie, although you said you didnt get my question, you gave me
the correct link which i needed. it helped me clearing my doubt.
i wanted to know how smayate='to smile'
what i learnt from the link is smayate/ti is the present tense of
smile. just like kreedati( to play) and hasati( to laugh). thanks.
kaushik

You are letting yourself in for a hard time with this mother of all designer
languages!

For starters:

English = periphrastic,

Sanskrit = inflected (very!)

. . . and don't expect Webster's to be very helpful here (:-(
