31 The Forms of the Doubled Stems
31.2 Common Features
In all forms of the doubled stems, the middle radical is doubled (Dagesch forte). As a characteristic of formation, the vowels in the strong syllable (thus before the doubled consonant) appear unchanged. ← 90 | 91 →
The doubling does not occur when the middle radical is a guttural or a Resch (→ §§ 9 and 34).
The Dagesch forte can drop out when the middle radical does not belong to the group of BeGaDKeFaT and has a Schwa with it (→ § 5.2).
The vowel after the 2nd radical is e or a and disappears before vowel afformatives.
