Dear b-hebrew listers,
In the Grammar section of our friend's Karl W. Randolph dictionary (the
work he was so kind to let us know on this list), I read this concerning
1. "Usuallly derived from a verb"
Is this true? There are in Hebrew many nouns not derived from a verb. For
instance, שמש, shemesh, sun; מלח, melax, salt; דור, dor, generation...
Fortunately, Karl himself writes also: "Not all nouns are derived from
2. Shegolate: wrong. It must be "segolate".
3. He writes that
-- Segolate are nouns that are spelled with the same consonants as a third
person singular Qal Qatal verb
--but during the Masoretic times pronounced with two short "e" sounds
following the first two consonants.
Can we accept this?
Noun ארח, orax, way (Gn 18:11) has two "e" sounds?
VERY IMPORTANT: My criticism is absolutely positive, looking only for the
(Barcelona, Catalonia, Northeastern Spain)
