Most nouns with a pronoun suffix and end with a short vowel have a dagesh chazak added. Examples: עַמִּי, כֻּלּוֹ, בָּתֵּינוּ. However, the word כִּנְאֻמֶךָ (in Emes Veyatziv) does not have a dagesh in the mem. Why not?

  • The dagesh chazak in bateinu is an exception dagesh. No rules should be learned from there. – Double AA Jan 7 '14 at 1:15

    @IsaacMoses ...as it relates to prayers. A word's existing in a prayer doesn't make it on topic either. – Double AA Jan 7 '14 at 2:51
