The Modern Hebrew template tQuLa in light of Jean Lowenstamm’s work
In this paper, I examine two interesting systemic aspects of the nominal template tQuLa of Modern Hebrew, emphasizing how Jean Lowenstamm’s work has contributed to the study of templates in general. First, I show that the distributional lacunae of this template can be explained if it is taken as the weak-medial equivalent of the template tiQTóLet. I show that this claim can only be made rigorous in the framework of a theory of templates such as the one advanced by Lowenstamm. I then compare the templatic prefix t- in tQuLa to the verbal person prefix t-, and show that their different behaviors can be explained if one adopts Kaye’s (1995) morphological domains, themselves motivated by Lowenstamm’s recent morpho-syntactic work (2010,  2011, 2012).
