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
Thanks and best.

HH: If you could explain what it does, it would be
easier to identify it with some other name.
