-eyim, -elim

Indeed, "-eyim/ay覺m" and "-elim/ay覺m" are analysed as

e+im(1st type of personal suffix of 1st singular)---------->-eyim

e+lim(personal suffix of 1st plural, special for this mood)-->-elim


I can´t translate this term into English, excuse me. I´m writing only the conjugations of 1st singular and 1st plural because the other ones are almost never used nowadays. You may see them in the archaic poems or texts.


This mood is translated by "let" as well. But here is no permission meaning like there wasn´t the previous mood. We can suppose this is an imperative mood to ourselves.
