Nom. obl. {rp¡m} = /rapaªima/. There is not a separate case for the expression of the vocative. There are two lexical vocative markers that are placed before the noun, l and y (cf.

The morphology of a Ugaritic word will thus be made up of the following elements: (1) an abstract entity known as the root, which exists in concrete form as a set of consonants, usually two or three, which in a nominal root may include a vowel, (2) one or more vowels (semantic variation is expressed by internal vowel changes that specialists call Ablaut, as in German), with the possibility of longer forms produced (3) by affixation and/or (4) by prefixation.
