4. Now to the associated personal pronouns. TeATREHU = T-ATR-E-HU, or
in full: TeATREHU = ATAH-ATR-HI-HU, where both ATAH and HI refer to
the actor, here God, and HU to the beneficiary of God's providence,

5. In the case of a female actor it is: TA-ATR-YI-HU, where YI is
what is left of HYI), 'she'. In the case of a female beneficiary it
is: TA-ATR-E-HA, where HA is all is left now of HYI), 'she'.

Dear Isaac,

Please, why do you write TeATREHU for a male actor and TAATRYIHU for a 
female actress?

Why this difference in the first syllable: Te for the masculine and TA for 
the feminine?
Are you sure this is right?
I think both must be "Te", namely TAV and shewa.
