Abstract The paper studies the formation of the participle in Biblical Hebrew according to the Masoretic (Tiberian) tradition, arranged according to the different conjugations and the different classes of weak verbs, including verbal adjectives. It includes examination of the details of vocalization and plene or defective writing. For the distribution of doublets, it tries to formulate syntactic, semantic, or diachronic rules. Two groups of forms exhibit special features: feminine singular participles and participles of roots III.j without ending. The feminine singular forms can end in -a or in -t. The ending -a is paradigmatic in all participles of roots III.j, after long vowel (passive participle and the roots II.w) or doubled vowel (roots II.gem.) Other active participles end normally in -t, endings in -a are common only in poetic texts. Passive participles prefer -a in nominal use, - t in verbal. Verbal adjectives end in -a. Masculine singular participles of roots III.j can be vocalized with sere and with segol. Commonly, the forms in sere are classified as construct state, but syntactically some of them are not in construct state. So the condition for forms in sere is better labelled as close joined situation.
