sebat m or f
- long attributive form of
- Coordinate term: seba' (short attributive form)
- The attributive forms are used before counted nouns. The long form is used with broken plurals that begin with a consonant cluster. To the noun i- is then prefixed: tfal (“children”) → sebat itfal (“seven children”). Irregularly this also happens with jiem: sebat ijiem (“seven days”).
- The use of the long form in the above contexts is predominantly observed, but for the most part is not entirely obligatory, meaning that seba' tfal may also be heard.
