Thank you, I would like to learn more about pubbakiriya.
In Russian beside participles there is a special class of forms called
'adverbial participles' (deeprichastiya), with '-av' ending for past and
'-aya' for present, which closely correspond to Pali '-tva' and '-aya' forms.
So please write whether '-aya' forms express past or present, so that
I will be able to make exact translations.
