Augment

 

auxiliary particle, occurring as a vowel; used in Indo-European languages before verb forms that indicate past action. In the Indo-Iranian, ancient Greek, and Armenian languages the augment is preserved as a past tense prefix (ancient Indian a-patänt, “I fell,” compared with patāmi, “I am falling”; compare the Greek augment є- in the same function).
