Class B is used after etar and for ; combined with the dental
of the pronoun fri(th) becomes frit- and con- (com) becomes
cot- ; ad-, aith-, ess-, in- (ind-) all become at-.
Class C is used (a) after prep. + rel. : dia n- ' from whom,
from which ', lassa n-, ' by whom, by which ', etc. (and i n-,
* in which ', the rel. being understood) ; hence after the con-
