Verb patterns ﻞﻌﻔﻟﺍ ﻥﺍﺯﻭﺃ

Forms ﻥﺍﺯﻭﺃ In Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) there are 10 common tri-literal verb forms. These forms are designated I through X (see Verb and noun paradigm chart).

One difference between the verb forms is in the stem constituent of each. Again, the tri-literal verb is derived from a tri-consonantal root wherein the first root consonant is represented by “f” (ﻑ), the second by “c” (ﻉ), and the third by “l” (ﻝ). Interleaved between the stem consonants are stem vowels.
