Chapter Summary

The majority of verbs in ANA can be analysed as having a triliteral root. There is also a sizeable group of verbs with quadriliteral roots and a limited number of verbs with pentaliteral roots. Verbs from a triliteral root may be conjugated in one of three stems. Stem I evolved primarily from the OA pәʿal stem, Stem II evolved primarily from the OA paʿʿel stem, and Stem III evolved out of the OA ʾapʿel stem. A nominal or prepositional phrase which is the predicate of a clause will, as a rule, contain a copula that is added to the predicate.

Keywords:copula; pentaliteral roots; quadriliteral roots; verbal morphology
