When your Hebrew grammar begins to answer the questions you have pondered, then it becomes a delight to study grammar. Kittel et al (Biblical Hebrew, Yale) does a nice job of introducing ways of finding the missing letter in prefix forms. She calls them the "missing letter rules." Naama Zahavi Ely has a page, also, with some of the exceptions (a bit strange as Naama does not use final letter forms, which threw me off at first). Beside these two, any suggestions on clues for finding the missing root letter in two-letter roots? I would love either more rules (Kittel offers 4 rules) or the exceptions.
