5.2.37 - HitpeelAn Aramaic verb stem. “In Biblical Aramaic, ‘stem’ refers to the relationship of the verb’s subject to the action of the verb. That is, stems convey grammatical ‘voice’ relationships. The Hitpeel is the reflexive counterpart to the Aramaic Peal stem of simple action. The subject of the Hitpeel therefore acts upon or with respect to itself. Note that so-called Hitpeel forms of hollow verbs are actually Hitafel forms (see Hitafel).”1 See Afel, Hafel, Hifil, Hitafel, Hitpaal, Pael, and Peal.
