Kutscher has shown that 1Qlsaa preserved a number of original nominal forms in which two consecutive u vowels were not dissimilated, including forms of the original quttul pattern, e.g., עוזוז = MT עזוז (43:17). This article adds new data: e.g., שובוע (šubbuʿ) and בוכורה (bukkura). It describes the forms and usages of the quttul pattern in the Semitic languages and further suggests that this pattern is Protosemitic and has various dissimilated forms in the Semitic languages, e.g., qittul, qittūl, qattūl, and quttāl. Not a few nouns which have been taken as derived from other original Semitic patterns in fact belong to this pattern, e.g., גבור.
