Example text

The authors’ selection of apocopated as opposed to unapocopated forms appears to be unsystematic, with both alternatives found in the same syntactic positions such as following an initial qaṭal; thus the use of the unapocopated variants does not seem to affect the translation value of the verbs in question. However, some of the particular roots in question closely resemble yiqṭols preceded by the waw-conjunctive found in Medieval Hebrew texts, and it is thus possible that the maskilic authors were inspired by a false analogy with these forms and incorporated them into their own writing as wayyiqṭols without altering them to bring them into conformity with the biblical apocopation rule.

This variant is attested in the majority of texts in the corpus.
