Description

This chapter addresses both of these topics in the context of an analysis of the pausal forms of Classical Arabic.  Words in Classical Arabic,  a few modern Arabic dialects (Fleisch, 1968: 29; Fischer and Jastrow, 1980: 111), and Biblical Hebrew (Prince, 1975; McCarthy, 1979; Goerwitz, 1993) undergo various morphophonemic alternations when they occur in utterance-final position. Traditionally, the utterance-final context is referred to as pause , and the words that appear there are described as pausal forms or in pause .
