This is a variant of ptr N-t057 used when the word ends in a guttural (not א).
Some masculine nouns, having a guttural as their last consonant, match this pattern in their absolute and construct form.
|[Sol 2:13]||smell, scent, odor||רֵיחַ / ריח|
|[Lev 1:9]||smell of quieting||רֵיחַ נִיחוֹחַ / ריח|
|[#]||thought||שֵֹיחַ / שיח|
|[#]||(the) thought of my mother||שֵֹיחַ אִמִּי / שיח|
