Aramaic Annotations: Pt.

23

1. As noted in the 20th installment of these notes, here, we are going to look at the
paradigm of the Peal Imperative Paradigm. A chart I’ve created is below:

2. We should recall that the Peal Imperative expresses a present tense command.
3. Note that the Imperative tends to have a suffix (these differ in the pointing
system, so, pay attention!).
4. Note that there is a qibbuts vowel present in the imperative.
5. Note the shewa + qibbuts vowels as the first two vowels of each word.
6. Note the use of the waw in the Supra-linear pointing system.
