Meaning :to climb, mount an animal, rise (as sun, moon, stars), rise in pitch (as a drum), get puffed up, (eyes) are turned up before death; (argas) to make climb, lift, haul up, take upon one's shoulders, lay a burden on, begin, raise, increase
Notes :A good example on the differentiation of the 'active' and 'concealed' -j- in Kurukh verbal stems: the -j-preterite and simple preterite stems respectively reflect the unmarked and the causative meanings. In Malto the "concealed" -j- is implicitly indicated by the stop -g- (*arg-nā would have yielded *arg̣-e).
Additional forms :Also KUR argtaʔānā, argaʔānā to make climb, lift up, etc.; MLT argtre to lift, raise.
