Chapter Summary

The people of the language used in their speech a construction that was intended to make a predication only about the patient and similar cases. They used in their speech another construction that was intended to make a predication about the agent. Surely, one can see that to the first predication it is appropriate to ask a question about the patient, and to the second it is appropriate to ask a question about the agent. The (characteristic feature) of a patient-oriented verb's structure is a qubbuṣ in the beginning of the verb, which can be replaced by a short qamaṣ. The (characteristic feature) of an agent-oriented verb's structure is the absence of the qubbuṣ in the prevalent majority of cases, but in exceptional cases (such verbs) can have a qubbuṣ.

Keywords: agent-oriented verb's structure; patient-oriented verb's structure; qamaṣ; qubbuṣ
