to write something (e.g. a letter)-fact about something-acc to someone-dat (the fact object also needs an inner fact or is absorbed by ‘write’; see unit 14, Objects related to language and the last exercise there)

srùb. writing utensil


irregular development of
NLem esr‑a
LMLem èsr‑a
MLem eesr‑a
Ghe eestʳ‑a /ɛːr̥ra/

The elision of e- and addition of the poststem -b is probably a contamination with psràb. ‘to father’, interpreting the author of a text as its father. This development is fortunate because the uncontaminated esr‑a is pretty awkward.
