Is there any instance in which a final chet takes a regular patach, rather than a patach ganuv? This also goes for 'ayin and hey mapik.

Hebrew words never end in a short vowel (including patach). There are plenty of words ending with a patach and then a chet, such as פֶּסַח, פֵּתַח, שָׁמַע, and גָּבַהּ.

What about Peh = mouth –  Double AA Apr 30 at 2:14
    
@DoubleAA That has a letter (hei) after the segol. –  Ypnypn Apr 30 at 2:18
    
??? That's a mater lectionis not a consonant. –  Double AA Apr 30 at 2:20
    
@DoubleAA Still, the word doesn't end with the segol, rather with a letter. –  Ypnypn Apr 30 at 2:23
    
I guess it depends how you define letter. It's written with a glyph, but the glyph is completely functionless. –  Double AA Apr 30 at 4:33
