[b-hebrew] "Opens the Womb" and "Firstborn"

Just a suggestion, to begin with, not a defendable position.
pr exists in a number of variations: pr, por, prr, related prsh, etc. Very
flexible root. Introducing t is a possibility, especially considering
semantical likeness. t is soft because it's pronounced soft. It's not
necessary an infix, rather likely a root letter. That's to say, ptr is
related to prr, not the same root.

Sincerely,

Vadim Cherny
