  1. A great amount of nouns:

    1. Masculine:

      1. Absolute form:

        [Gen 31:48](male) witnessmעֵד / עד
        [Psa 119:105]lampmנֵר / נר
        [Rut 4:11]namemשֵׁם / שם

        With the exception of בֵּן, שֵׁם, עֵץ and those that take dagesh, these nouns keep the tsere along all their declension.

      2. Construct form:

        1. of the preceding:

          [Exo 20:16f](the) witness of falsehoodmעֵד שָׁקֶר / עד
          [1Sa 3:3](and) (the) lamp of Godmוְ|נֵר אֱלֹהִים / נר
          [Rut 1:2](and) (the) name of the manmוְ|שֵׁם הָאִישׁ / שם


          Be careful:

          1. The construct of noun בֵּן, son, is בֶּן. Look at ptr N-d07.B.1

          2. Noun קֵן, nest, has two forms for the construct: one is that of this pattern N-d05 and another is that of pattern N-d08.A.1.b.3

        2. of nouns ptr N-d08 having י as their last root consonant:

          [Gen 42:15](the) alive of Pharaohחֵי פַרְעֹה / חי
          [Gen 25:6]alive, livingחַי
          [#](the) gift of my brothermשֵׁי אָחִיךָ / שי
          [Psa 76:16]giftmשַׁי

        3. of nouns ptr N-d07 ending in ה

          [Isa 43:23](the) sheep of your burnt offeringsmשֵׂה עֹלֹתֶיךָ / שה
          [Gen 30:32]sheepmשֶׂה

        4. of some duals:

        5. of nouns ptr N-t091 having a yod as their central root consonant:

        [Exo 9:2]firefאֵשׁ / אש

      2. Construct form:

        [Gen 3:20](the) mother of all livingfאֵם כָּל־חָי / אם
        [Num 11:1](the) fire of Yahwehfאֵשׁ יְהוָֹה / אש

  2. Singular masculine form of some adjectives:

    [Gen 37:24]emptymרֵק / רק
    [Exo 10:29]right, honestmכֵּן / כן


    Adjective חַי, alive, living, matches this pattern in the oaths by the life of a human being: see 1Sa 1:26

  4. Some prepositions:

    [Deu 6:5 ]object markאֵת / את
    [Exo 1:1 ]withאֵת / את
    [#]besideבֵּי / בי

    Remark: in today Hebrew the right vowel for preposition אֶת is segol, not tsere.

  9. Several Qal forms:

    1. Perfect, 3rd person masculine singular:

      1. of some of verbs ע"ו . Remember: in these verbs it is the infinitive construct that has an entrance into the dictionary.

        [Gen 42:38 ]he diedמֵת / מת
        [Gen 25:32](to) dieלָ|מוּת

      2. some verbs ל"ה

      [Gen 25:32](to) dieלָ|מוּת
      [Sol 5:2](m.b.) who awakes, awakingעֵר / ער
      [#]to rouse oneself, awakeעוּר

    3. Imperative, 2nd person singular masculine:

      1. of some verbs פ"י. This initial yod vanishes. Used in both dynamic and pausal position.

        For pause: look at ptr S-d0109 too.

        [Gen 20:15]sit! dwell! (you, male)!שֵׁב! / שב
        [Gen 13:12]to sit, dwellיָשַׁב
        [Exo 11:8]go out! (you, male)!צֵא! / צא
        [Gen 10:11]to go outיָצָא
        [Gen 26:16]go! (you, male)!לֵךְ! / לך
        [Gen 26:26]to go, walkהָלַךְ

      2. of verb נָתַן, to give:

        [2Ki 4:42 ]give! (you, male)!תֵּן! / תן
        [Gen 24:53]to giveנָתַן

        Look at ptr S-d0103 too.
