Abstract This article examines the morphology of the BH word tirgaltî (Hos 11:3) in light of a study of the tG/Gt-stem in Semitic. We explain the word’s odd morphology as the result of its phonological environment in which the preceding word ended in a (long) vowel. Moreover, this study suggests that there was no tipʿel stem in BH; instead, the origin of the so-called tipʿel stem can be traced to the Semitic tG-stem, which remained semi-productive in some varieties of Hebrew (i.e., Israelian Hebrew).
