Chapter Summary

Conjoined items are always indefinite and items to which the conjoining is made are always definite. The people of the language used word forms of two types. When one hears a word form of the first type, one does not need another word to complete its meaning. This type is referred to as disjoined. When a word form of the second type is mentioned, the hearer needs another word to complete its meaning. This type is referred to as conjoined. The two word forms are distinguished by their vocalisation. When a feminine singular (fs) noun is conjoined, heh turns into taw and qamaṣ turns into pataḥ. The people of the language used (word forms of) a third type, which they call 'continuing'. They intended it to be conjoined in meaning rather than conjoined to an item.

Keywords: heh; pataḥ; qamaṣ; taw
