The third person singular pronominal suffix -hne (-hni) was registered in the Arabic dialects of Latakia (Syria), Antakya and Samandaǧ (both of which are in the Turkish province Hatay). This rare suffix is primarily attached to words ending with vowels, and its appearance is marginal. This paper presents the pronominal suffixes of the dialect of Latakia attached to words ending with consonants and vowels, along with the pronominal suffix -hne (-hni), and all registered words which contain it. In conclusion I will discuss the possible origin of the suffix and -hne (-hni) and Werner Arnold’s hypothesis concerning the origin of the pronominal suffix -hne (-hni) in light of a synchronic interpretation based on the research data gathered by the author in Latakia.
