number 1 is just an "irregular" subcase of number 3. you have other
irregular subcases, where a regular 3-letter verb is not there before the
CARWT, QALWT, ROMEMWT, BLWT, $BWT, ZAKWT, R:)WT,
RE(WT, GASWT, GE)WT, R:BWT, LAXWT, (EDUT, L:ZWT, DALWT CAXWT, BRY)WT,
M:LEWT, PZYZWT, $A)ANANWT, TMYMWT, MEZY)WT, YE$WT, KLYLWT, QLILWT,
i would conjecture that the niqud partially
hints at the binyan. in numbr 1 we have:
PIEL: $:TWT, D:MWT, K:SUT
NIFAL: LE)WT, P:DUT, R:)WT (though here maybe it is QAL)
i dont know to classify N:KhWT. i would conjecture root HKH in nifal.
QAL: GFLWT, BFXUT, )FLWT, TA(WT,

Assunto: [b-hebrew] Noun in -WT
Dear b-hebrew listers,
I would like to propose a debate on nouns in -WT in the Bible. And so, DMWT,
image (Is 40:18) and similar.
I think there are three kinds of such nouns:
1. Those that derive from bases lamed-heh (or lamed-yod if you prefer):
DMWT, image; GLWT, exile (Is 20:4)... These substitute the heh of the base
2. Those that are produced by inserting a W between the last two root
consonants, the last of which is T. And so, SHERWT, service, built on the
basic SHERET, to serve (Dt 18:7)
3. Those that simply add -WT to the three consonants of the base: SKLWT,
stupidity (Ec 10:13), of the basic SEKEL, stupidity (Ec 10:6); MLKWT,
royalty (1Ch 29:25), of the basic MELEK, king.
Now, nouns in 1. are distributed in two types:
--those that take shewa in their first root consonant: D:MWT
--those that take qamats in their first root consonant: GFLWT
Am I right?
Are there some other kinds of nouns in -WT?
