Yes, e.g.

HWLLWT הוללות craziness, from HWL הול to make a fool of
HPGWT הפגות stopping, from PWG פוג
H$M(WT השמעות communication, from $M( שמע to hear
XLQLQWT חלקלקות smooth, slippery places ⇒ smooth talk that leads to a
fall, from
XLQ חלק
KRYTWT כריתות divorce, from KRT כרת
MHTLWT מהתלות mockery, from HTL התל
MW$Y(WT מושיעות salvation, from Y$( ישע
M(DWT מעדות adorned, from (DH עדה
N(WRWT נעורות youth, youthful time, from N(R נער
SLSLWT סלסלות trellis, from SLL סלל
THPKWT תהפכות overturning, perversity, from HPK הפך

Some of these may actually be plurals, I just quickly checked a few
possibilities from the unpointed dictionary.

Hope this helps.
