I am going back over my verb paradigms to get my parsing etc. down. Am I
right that if there is a verb with only two consonants of the root left in
the form, there only four basic possibilities in reconstructing the root:
1. It is a bi-consonental root and can be looked up as is.
2. The final He has dropped. This could only be true if the root has a
3. An initial Yod or Nun has dropped. This could only be true if the root
has a prefix.
4. The second and third letters are identical and have merged.
If I am right this whole thing has just gotten a fair bit easier. Could
someone confirm or deny this for me?
