Chapter Material

  1. Read this chapter from beginning to end, but do not study it carefully until you have listened to the lecture. Be sure to master all the diagnostics of the strong verb. This will be key to your mastery over the weak verbs.

  2. Listen to Gary's full lecture

  3. Read the chapter. 

    As an introduction to both chapters, study 34.1 which introduces the diagnostic features of the Hithpael conjugation and 34.2 which surveys the meaning of the Hithpael.

    Hithpael verbs are easy to identify unless "metathesis" has taken place. Study 34.12 with maticulous care. Additionally, there is a process of assimilation that can make the identification of Hithpael verbs very difficult as well (34.13). Apart from these two phenomena, you will have little difficulty with the recognition of this verbal stem.

  4. Listen to the vocabulary (Biblical examples)

Review

  4. Do you understand the loss of the distincetive Daghesh Forte in selcted forms of the Geminate Perfect, Imperfect, Imperative and Participle paradigms?

  5. Have you observed that a Daghesh Forte in the second consonant of the verbal root is diagnostic of the Piel, Pual, and Hithpael stems?

  6. Do you understand the phenomenon of metathesis in the Hithpael stem (34.12)?
