Welcome, Mike!  Where are you posting from?
Well, I don't know what Augustine says. Now, I think the Vulgate has
several mistakes...
As regards our word "takliyth" (as you're writing it) (*), this is an
uncommon noun pattern built up on several root types, mainly  -methinks-
lamed-heh and ayin-yod.
In modern Hebrew we find Tagliyt, *discovering* (not in the Bible), from
verb galah (1S 4:21), *uncover*, and tashtiyt, *base, foundation* (not in
the Bible), from verb (la)shyt, *put, set* (Jb 30:1).

Maybe this helps.

(*) Are you aware of the transcription guidelines of Hebrew letters we use
in this forum?
If not, ask the moderators, please.

Again, welcome!
