Usage notes[edit]

The word שַׁכְחָן is of the form פַּעֲלָן (pa'alán) — a form usually indicating a noun, though it also bears some adjectives describing personality, temperament, physical habit, etc. However there are dictionaries in which this word is found in the unambiguously adjectival pa'alani form שַׁכְחָנִי (shakhekhani).
