Ge'ez nabara 'he sat' and jussive y,nbar 'let him sit, may he sit'. , Central Se­ mitic, is slightly more complex. The inherited perfective form, in combination with a suffix *-u (originally a marker of subordina­ tion) came to indicate non-past, replacing the inherited non-past form (Rubin 2005). The result is that in Central Semitic there was a form of the shape *prefix + CCVC that indicated the jus­ sive, and a form *prefix + CCVC-u that indicated non-past. This situation is found in Classical and Modern Standard Arabic.
