AbstractThis paper argues that the morphological difference between qal and non-causative hiphil forms of בי״ן has a semantic correlate. The qal expresses perception, lower degrees of mental activity, and a lower degree of agentivity. It denotes sense-based perception, awareness, and cognizance The hiphil expresses a higher level of agentivity as well as a higher, more complex, and more demanding mental activity. It involves disentangling, decipherment, comprehension, as well as practical application.
