Postpositions occurring with the accusative

. Note that in LT, when case-marked nouns ending in a vowel, such as the accusative, are followed by words (usually verbs or postpositions) that begin with hard consonants, those consonants are doubled. Thus Ƥ ԯػ `I saw him', Ƥ ԯ բػ `I laughed at him', etc. This doubling rule is followed by some writers when writing ST, but we will not use it in this grammar, since the LT rule is essentially a spelling rule, and no such rules exist for ST.
