Dear Peter,

Before I comment on your post I have two questions:

(1) Isaiah 44:12-17: Are you saying that the relationship between the
reference time and the deictic point of the WAYYIQTOLs is different from
that of the YIQTOLs and? And similarly with the QATALs and the WEQATALs?

(2) In your opinion, what are the criteria for the differentiation between
WEQATAL (as a conjugation separate from QATAL) and WE-QATAL  as a part of
the QATAL conjugation?
