No- on the contrary,
rolf deletes the vavhahippux morphological category from the language on
the basis of his desire to join simpmle prefix verbs with vavhahipux
(short) prefix verbs. We've already been over this on the list too many
Rolf is playing with a fictitious language that he calls scientific because
has has deleted all the vowels and doesn't know how to read them.
If you read unvocalized texts, then learn to read them correctly.
I encourage my students to CORRECTLY read/vocalize Jonah from an
unvocalized text when they have learned the book. (and some of my first
semester students can do it!) There are two broad classes of prefix verbs
in this. vayYAqom is not the same as yaQUM or ve+yaQUM. Two morphologies.
Two broad semantic/pragmatic categories.
