jussive

A jussive verb is in one of the volitional moods.  They look very similar to YQTLs and will be in the third person.  If possible (as with third-ה verbs), the jussive will apocopate.  The general rule is that when a third person YQTL (and no vav-conversive) is the first word in its clause, it is a jussive.  If not first in its clause, then it is just a regular YQTL.
