PronunciationEdit

VerbEdit

beka (imperfect jibki)

  1. to cry

Usage notesEdit

  • Colloquially, the conjugated forms may undergo metathesis in some speakers (kbejt and jikbi instead of bkejt, jibki, etc.). Only the basic form and its negative bekiex are generally exempted from this because of the intervening vowel. Probably this phenomenon stems originally from coarticulation in fast speech, but it is not restricted to such contexts anymore.
