Sorry, I might be missing something here... I can't see a Dagesh in Reish in
any of the words you mentioned. Do you have a Biblical source that has a
Dagesh in these words? They all have a Shva under Reish, but I was looking
for a Dagesh.

Resh occurs with a dagesh 9093 times in 3068 distinct forms in 7101
verses. The most common words are

par`oh Pharaoh
hayyarden Jordan
we'amarta and you say
wayyar' and he saw
yirmeyahu Jeremiah
resha`im wicked ones

Is this what you want?
