Suffix Paragogic Nun
The paragogic נ (nun) suffix can only attach to a finite verb, and its meaning is unknown.
This suffix is an unexplained feature of Biblical Hebrew grammar with no discernible meaning or function.
The paragogic נ (nun) is a simple consonant appearing either as a suffix or an infix. When appearing as a suffix, it stands at
the end of the word, following the verb conjugation ending (as in the examples below). When appearing as an infix, the paragogic
נ (nun) is usually represented by a daghesh forte inside the initial letter of a pronominal suffix.
