Brief Communcation H.W. BODEWITZ A VEDIC EXAMPLE OF ‘NO DOUBT’ USED AS A PARENTHETIC CLAUSE Speyer (1886: 388) observed that verbal forms like manye, j ¯ ane etc. are inserted in the sentence without having any influence on its syntax. In this connection he also mentioned phrases like na sam . ´ sayah . , n ¯ atra sam . ´ sayah . ’undoubtedly, no doubt’. The Vedic syntax of Delbrück (1888) does not deal with this subject. Speyer (1896: 94) discusses the “Zwischensätze” in his last paragraph, adds na sam . dehah . ‘no doubt’ as example, but does not refer to Vedic texts. The PW mentions the parenthetical use s.v. sam . deha and sam . ´ saya and likewise does not give Vedic material. A Vedic term for doubt is vicikits a . It is i.a. found in two parallel passages, ´ SB. 10, 6, 3, 2 and ChU. 3, 14, 4. In the latter version na vicikits ¯ asti is evidently not parenthetically used: es . a ma ¯ atm ¯ antar hr . daya. etad brahmaitam itah . prety ¯ abhisambhavit ¯ asm¯ıti yasya sy ¯ ad addh ¯ a na vicikits ¯
