I am wondering how I can find the form - in any root - such as תשמורו in the modules (DSSB-C or BHS-W4).
This form especially has "waw" as matre lexionis in the middle of the word which, I heard, can be found in DSSB-C.

This question was caused from the question from where the word form תשמרו (with holem) in Deut 13:5 came from.
The vowel holem is not seemingly right in this place, since it is not changed because of the accent.
Someone says that it might come from the northern dialect, which has waw in the middle, and this kind of form can be found in Qumran texts.

Therefore I wanted to find out in DSSB-C that kind of form in any words, but failed.

Let me know how I make search form.
Thanks..

There's nothing unusual about the form in Deut 13:5 as far as I can see, since the accent is on the syllable (the pashta also appears after the word, but it does not mark stress in that position; cf. GKC 15f, 8a note). Generally speaking, the presence of internal maters is not a reliable indicator of dialect or period, since later scribes would normalize the spelling of earlier texts as they copied and transmitted them.

If you want to find fully spelled imperfect/yqtl forms, use this wildcard search (this is how it should appear in your search box):
"??‏ו???"
In this case, you're searching for any six-letter word with waw in the fourth position, thus matching a variety of parts of speech.

If you only want verbal forms, add the [VERB] tag:
[VERB] @ "??‏ו???"

You could also vary the number of wildcard question marks before and after the waw to find roots with weak letters as well as different inflection (e.g. 1cs/2ms/3fs/3ms).
