Consonantal Yod Preceded by Hiriq

Postby Charles Loder » Fri Jun 05, 2020 9:37 am

Weird request, but could anyone supply an example of a consonantal yod preceded by a hiriq? i.e. consonant + hiriq + yod + dagesh/vowel/sheva

I this for some testing, but I don't have any software to easily find this nor can I think of any examples off hand. Biblical Hebrew is preferred, but rabbinic, liturgical, and modern are good as well. It may not ever occur either.

Are you good with dagesh in the letter? For example, סִיֵּם jumps immediately to mind, as do all kinds of adjectives with the genitilic suffix: מוֹאֲבִיּוֹת and יִשְׂרְאֵלִיּוֹת. There's רְעִיָּה and בְּנִיָּה, but I cannot think of any such combination that doesn't have dagesh.

Every Yod with a vowel that comes after Hiriq has a Dagesh (never mind if it is consonantal or not).

Ah! סִיֵּם works perfectly.

I wasn't considering the gentilics because the qamets-he or holem-vav endings introduce another level of orthographic complexity. I was really trying to isolate a case like in סִיֵּם. Again, a weird request...
