[b-hebrew] Mem in the Middle of the Word

I suspect that part of the problem I had with the electronic search is that
is sucked up many words that were not examples of what you were looking for:
e.g. -M- that were listed merely because they were a participle preceded by
a waw, and other similar examples. Almost none of the electronic searches
resulted in a -M- that is a prefix.

Of the few examples where -M- is a prefix, everyone seems to come from MN.
