Not illustrated. 1852 Excerpt: ...We may regard the different species as derivatives from Kal; and in fact, in many important respects as to signification and use, they must be so treated. But there are also some real derivative verbs; they are formed from nouns, and hence they have the name of denominatives: --de nomine. For instance, 7HK a-hal', and?HK I-hal', to pitch a tent, from?HK o'-hel, a tent. The noun from which the denominative verb is formed, is itself commonly derived from some other verb.

Feminine nouns commonly end in fl--or T--(preceded by a guttural T--); the termination il--is by far the most common: sometimes there is a double termination fin-.
