Elisha Qimron’s תיארקמ תימרא is an important work that contains many thought-provoking discussions. In this note, I would like to address three questions raised, directly or indirectly, by his brief discussion of furtive patah˙ (הבונג חתפ). How did the Tiberian Masoretes pronounce furtive patah˙? How did that pronunciation originate? Why is there no furtive patah˙ in the Biblical Aramaic m.s. suffixed pronoun הֵּ-?
