Be very careful:
In the niqud:
If the first letter is אָ do not mistake for pattern P-d030.
If the first letter is יָ do not mistake for pattern P-d124.
If the first letter is לָ do not mistake for a word N-d08 having a guttural or ר as its first letter and being preceded by article, as in לָרַב, to the much (Num 33:54)
If the first letter is נָ do not mistake for pattern P-d219.
If the first letter is תָּ do not mistake for pattern P-d292.

Qal perfect, 3rd person singular masculine of a great deal of Hebrew verbs, nearly 80 %. Thus, this is the form with an entrance into dictionaries. For the sake of making things easy one usually translates this form for our Infinitive. Oxytone.
