  • Lamed Gutturals - verbs that have the gutturals ( ( x h ) in the lamed, that is, last position.
  • Like "a" class vowels before them and around them (note: Qal Perfect, 2fs)
  • If the stem vowel of a strong vowel form is unchangeably long ( y O U ), the corresponding form of a lamed guttural verb will retain the unchangeably long vowel as its stem vowel, but will have a patah furtive inserted between this vowel and the final guttural.
  • Regarding Suffixes: The forms are pointed like the strong verb except:
  • The stem before all  hfn suffixes is a patah
  • The Qal Perfect, 2fs has a patah instead of a sheva
