I'm looking for a resource where I could find notes for my Bar Mitzvah parsha (Tazria) along the lines of:

  • in 4th it's always "hee" and never "huu"
  • it's always noga in the middle of the end of the pasuk, otherwise, it's always nega
  • it's bo-oyr except when followed by smichut and either ve-oyr or be-oyr otherwise

I occasionally discover these patterns myself and they boost my learning significantly.

Surely, someone must have written these down for the whole Chumash by now?

I mostly care about "tricky" words with multiple vocalisations throughout the reading but any patterns that can help me internalise anything about reading the parasha would be great to discover too.

    You should learn Hebrew grammar, and you'd get 97% percent of it. Mar 4 at 16:14

    Finding the patterns yourself is generally much more effective as a memory tool.

  • I live in Israel and speak more or less fluent Hebrew, in any case, my grammar knowledge is pretty comprehensive, which is why I even discovered the smichut pattern at all. I don't see how knowing grammar could possibly help me see links between cancellations and nikud though.

    @rudolfovic I've made cheat sheets divided into sections per aliyah and looked at them in between. It's generally only useful to have a maximum of 3 items per aliyah or you forget them.

    Nikkud and teamim are often related. I suspect your grammar isn't as comprehensive as you think. Fluent speaking is not the same as knowing the underlying grammar.

The Simanin Tikkun (published by Feldheim) has many notes like this in a section they call Shitah Mekubetzet.
