There is no source offered for the common Old English

 –S suffix used

1) for the plural of proper nouns: boyS or bookS nor for

2) for the indicator of possessive: boy’S or book’S.

The Tahf / T which can also be read as (Ashkenazik) Sahf / (S) is the suffix for some plural, feminine nouns, such as M’OWRoaT or M’OWRoaS (lights, luminaries in Genesis 1:15). (Best for the Qal and Hitpael forms.)

The Tahf/Sahf is also the possessive suffix for all feminine words.  The first word in the Hebrew Bible  (BeReSHeeS, in the beginning OF) ends with a Tahf/Sahf.  Just as English “he” becomes HIS in adding  the possessive, ZeH, (this - masculine)  becomes ZOaS (feminine – this, as in Genesis 2:23) by adding the –S (Sahf/Tahf suffix.

The suffix –S in third person, present tense, like the S in “she hearS” is identical with any third person present verb in Edenic, such as when “Sara SHoaMa’[A]S” Sarah hears in Genesis 18:10.

A Tahf/T read as S or TH fits the Ashkenazik (Germanic) pronunciation, which is global, not just observable in Hebrew speakers – as discussed elsewhere, like the RAVEN entry.


The suffix–TH in the archaic verbs like “heareTH” corresponds to this same Tahf suffix of feminine verbs which also can be read as TH / Thaf.    More on THIS at THIS.
