Abstract [en]

The we-qatal syntagm has been regarded as one of the salient syntactical features that distinguish Biblical Hebrew from the rest of the North-West Semitic dialects. There seems to be few parallel constructions in other ancient Semitic languages. The common denominator of the studies so far is that we-qatal is a verbal grammatical morpheme of its own, a verbal conjugation that is to be distinguished from the Vsuff gram.
