Chapter Summary

The qaṭal is generally the only conjugation in which a distinction between the hitpa'el and nitpa'el is visible, though there are some instances of the nun preformative remaining in the qoṭel as well. Biblical Hebrew pu'al forms are sometimes attested as qaṭals, and most of the maskilic pu'als found in this conjugation have precise equivalents in the biblical corpus. The corpus contains a number of pu'al forms in the yiqṭol conjugation. Masculine plural qoṭel forms in the corpus usually end with a mem, but they are attested with a final nun on several occasions in the writing of many authors. Although the majority of the 3ms wayyiqṭols of lamed he roots in the corpus undergo apocopation, there are substantial numbers of such forms that remain unapocopated.

Keywords: hitpa'el; nitpa'el; qaṭal; qoṭel; wayyiqṭols; yiqṭol; Biblical Hebrew; Masculine plural
