1. Plural absolute of several word kinds:

    1. A few words N-d08.

      Also adjective רַע, evil (Neh 9:28), fits here for both plural feminine absolute and construct: look, respectively, at Jer 24:2 and at Gen 41:3

      [Job 1:2]daughtersבָּנוֹת / בנות
      [Gen 5:4](and) daughtersוּ|בָנוֹת / בנות
      [Exo 1:16]daughterבַּת
    2. Look too at ptr S-d1587

      Words N-d10, mainly Qal Participles -either absolute or construct- of verbs ע׳ו׳י

      [Gen 43:34]handsיָדוֹת / ידות
      [Gen 38:28]handיָד
      [Eze 16:16](females) who/which come, comingבָאוֹת / באות
      [Gen 33:1](male) who/which comes, comingבָּא
      [1Sa 1:13](females) who/which totterנָעוֹת / נעות
      [Gen 4:12](male) who/which tottersנָע


      Remark the noun אָחוֹת / אחות, sister (2Sa 13:1), not sisters. For this plural look at ptr S-d0792


      This pattern is sometimes used also for the construct: דָּתות, religions; דָּתוֹת הַאֲנָשִׁים, (the) religions of (men, people), of דָּת, religion.

    3. Some words N-t113

      [Mic 2:2]fieldsשָֹדוֹת / שדות
      [Joe 1:10]fieldשָֹדֶה
      [#]chestsחָזוֹת / חזות
      [Exo 29:26](the) chestהֶ|חָזֶה
    4. Nouns N-t116 that end in ה.

      [#]yearsשָׁנוֹת / שנות
      [Amo 2:10]yearשָׁנָה
      [Job 5:19]misfortunesצָרוֹת / צרות
      [1Sa 26:24]misfortuneצָרָה
      [1Sa 1:4]piecesמָנוֹת / מנות
      [1Sa 1:5]pieceמָנָה


      1. Sometimes in the Bible also Plural construct: בָּמוֹת אַרְנֹן, (the) high places of (Arnon) (Num 21:28)

      2. Remark: there are five nouns not built on roots ע"ו that keep the qamats. These are: אָלָה, בָּבָה, בָּמָה, נָפָה and עָגָה

    5. Nouns S-d0117, both absolute and construct:

      [1Ki 11:3]princesses, (the) princesses of)שָֹרוֹת / שרות
      [Gen 17:15]princessשָֹרָה


      Every noun ptr S-d0117 that has been built on nouns deriving from roots ע"ו fits this pattern both in plural absolute and construct: נָפוֹת, districts

  2. Niph'al Infinitive construct, apocopate, of some verbs ל"י.

    As regards its grammar gender: it is masculine.

    [Isa 1:12](to) be seenלֵ|רָאוֹת / ראות
    [Psa 33:13]to seeרָאָה
    [#](to) profit(*) לֵ|הָנוֹת / הנות
    [#]to profitהָנָה

    (*) As for this verb, this is a right form, even if it lacks prefix הֵ

  3. Pi'el Infinitive construct of verbs ל"י that have ר for their middle root consonant.

    As for its grammar gender: it is masculine.

    [#](to) exciteלְ|גָרוֹת / גרות
    [#]to exciteגֵּרָה
    [#](to) measure by spanלְ|זָרוֹת / זרות
    [#]to measure by spanזֵרָה
  4. Two Qal forms:

    1. Qal Perfect, second person singular feminine, of verbs ע"ע having a guttural or ר for their middle and last root consonant:

      [#]you (female) selected, choseבָּרוֹת / ברות
      [#]to select, to chooseבָרַר
    2. Qal Participle, plural feminine:

      [#](females) who do evil, (females) evildoersרָעוֹת / רעות
      [#]to do evilרָעַע
