Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
צמה • (transliteration needed)
- Feminine singular present participle and present tense of צם (tsám).
- Third-person feminine singular past tense (suffix conjugation) of צם (tsám)
- As always for the paal construction of a triliteral verb with second root letter ו or י, the feminine third-person singular past tense is traditionally pronounced with its emphasis on the first syllable, and the feminine singular present tense with its emphasis on the second; in colloquial use, though, both are pronounced with emphasis on the first syllable.
