Chapter Summary

For all imperatives that have a transitive morphological form and begin in a heh it holds that the past begins in a heh, and the active participle begins in a mem. Hence, the mnemonic for the first letter of the imperative, the first letter of the past and the first letter of the active participle are the letters הֵהם. In twenty-five conjugational patterns the imperative begins in a heh, the past begins in a heh and the active participle begins a mem. One can establish for it the symbol פִֶרי: the end of its imperative is vocalised with a segol and the end of its past form with a ḥireq. All intransitive imperatives with the morphological form of iftiʿāl always contain a taw, and the imperative begins in a built-in heh, the past begins in a built-in heh, and the active participle begins in a built-in mem.

Keywords: ḥireq; active participle; heh; imperatives; mem; transitive morphological form
