Hi Yitzhak,

It doesn't surprise me Chris would expect hannitsvah.  Several, maybe 
most, grammars teach the feminine singular participles end with --ah. 
They are, of course, teaching "the exception" (to be more precise, let's 
call it "the less common form") rather than the rule.  Most feminine 
singular participles in the Bible have the --e-et pattern.
