-uva

future tense ending. In avuva, caluva, cenuva, hiruva, enquantuva, entuluva, laituvalmet, lauva, maruvan, termaruva, tiruvantes. A final -a drops out before the ending -uva is added: quanta- “fill”, future tense quantuva PE17:68. A verbal stem in -av- may be contracted when -uva follows, as when avuva is stated to have become auva VT49:13. Origin/etymology of the ending -uva, see VT48:32. In VT49:30, the future tense of the verb “to be” is given as uva, apparently the future-tense “ending” appearing independently, but several other sources rather give nauva for “will be” see ná \#1.
