[b-hebrew] English term for Hebrew grammatical term?

This is the dagesh in words like eille (these), henna (hereto), lamma (why,
what for). The term used in Gesenius (#20k) is dagesh forte FIRMATIVUM. I
was hoping that there is a more "popular" term that can be
readable/pronounceable by lay people.  Do you (or someone else) know of such
term?

 

Thanks and best.

Dear Rivka,

 

> Does anyone on this list know the English name/term for Dagesh LeTif'eret

> HaKri'ah? (literally, dagesh for the glory of the reading).

 

HH: If you could explain what it does, it would be 

easier to identify it with some other name.

 

Yours,

Harold Holmyard
