(ii) -ta or -°a, which are the reflexes of the feminine singular determined state inflection of earlier Aramaic. (iii) -o, which is a feminine or diminutive ending. (iv) -e. The chapter also lists the various morphological patterns of nouns in the dialect that have one of these inflectional endings in the singular.
