[b-hebrew] Notation in Holladay's Lexicon

"I find myself asking regularly
if the listed grammatical forms are intended to be the exhaustive list of
Hebrew Bible uses or is it only a list of non-regular forms, which cannot be
determined from my beginning text book (e.g. Seow)."

See p. x in the lexicon's introduction. The lists are not always exhaustive. 
It is assumed that users know the basic patterns of verbs and nouns. But it 
is much more than a listing of non-regular forms. It looks like, in general, 
the various inflectional forms of a word are listed.

It seems to me that there are many *secrets *of the Holladay lexicon and
other lexicons which are not documented. Perhaps you can help me with these
questions. Reference the entry for nathan (NFTAN), in the 1988 edition (13th
impression) on page 249. In the grammatical forms section (preceding
definition) there are entries for imperfects (impf.). The second one is
YIT.EN- . Does the ending meqqeph indicate that this is a form that only
appears with object suffixes? Additionally, I find myself asking regularly
if the listed grammatical forms are intended to be the exhaustive list of
Hebrew Bible uses or is it only a list of non-regular forms, which cannot be
determined from my beginning text book (e.g. Seow).

Thank you.
Kevin Buchs

Hello Kevin,

these forms are such forms wich are "connected" with the following word
with a maqqef, i.e. the two words are pronounced together. Because of that
the vocalization changed from s??r? into seg?l.

P.T.
