The dative case of infinitives in Slavic langs

Post by Profi_GManWorkaround » Wed Mar 20, 2019 8:35 pm

Hi! I know the infinitive form of verb in MIE is basically the accusative of verbal nouns (ending with "-tus"). But in Slavic langs it's the dative case of "-tis" verbal nouns (and the accusative of "-tus" verbal nouns is supine), but why? Was the dative used as the infinitive form in MIE in some cases?
