Narayan Prasad on BVP also pointed to Bopadeva's Kavikalpadruma for
चोरति/चोरयति. The verb form चोरति may as well be a borrow-back from
vernacular usages. For now, Bopadeva is a good authority for me to use
चोरति/चुचोर in my verses. The past perfect corresponding to चोरयति is the
periphrastic चोरयामास type, rather than चुचोर. With best wishes,
