Dear Rolf,

You can't be serious on that. Out of head, 90% of wa's reverse the tense.
Those that don't represent probably the same percentage of the erroneous
tenses as encountered in the verbs without wa. Wa's overwhelmingly do
reverse the tense, wouldn't you agree with this?

conclusion, there is no evidence that qatal and weqatal are separate
and independent conjugations or that they have different origins.
I agree that there is no difference between the two forms - weqatal
is a qatal with the conjunction WAW prefixed.<

Best regards,
