Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
פתח (transliteration needed)
- to open
From the root פ־ת־ח (p-t-ḥ).
- פתח, unlike English open, is not an ergative verb; when it is used without an explicit direct object, it is because the object is implied. If there is no implicit object, נפתח (niftákh) is used instead.
- Defective spelling of פיתח.
