HH: The fact is that the third person singular does not always end with
a heh. Sometimes it end with a tav. In GKC #44f notes that rarer forms
include the third feminine singular ending in pathach followed by tav
"(as in Arabic, Ethiopic, and Aramaic)." They give examples: Deut
32:36; Isa 23:15; Ezek 46:17.
