Question for Akhan Steven Caruso - Syriac Shibboleth ?
Nice, thanks for the confirmation, Akh. A few hours after I posted, I also found reference to a recently-discovered fragment of 1Enoch from the Dead Sea Scrolls. 1 Enoch 7:14 reads "and they began to injure ..." using $-r-y. Interesting attestation in that dialect as well.

What brought my question up was the clear evidence of nouns and adjectives derived from $-r-y in the Western dialects, but no (readily apparent) direct usage as a verb in the lemma summaries (which I found odd, of course, considering almost all of our Aramaic nouns and adjectives are rooted in verbs.)

I shoulda looked harder before bothering you, but I was at work and in a hurry for an answer to a colleague. <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/smile.gif" alt="Smile" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->
