>>> That’s why I understand that the two times BRNYWT is found in contexts that indicate that these 
are plural nouns, that they indicate that the singular noun BRNYH was in BH. This is a pattern that is found in Tanakh. 

pere and i never claimed otherwise. by the way, i suspect that the non-radical -NYH/-NYT singular suffix (as opposed to the 
-H/-YT suffix) in nouns (as opposed to adjectives) is a diminutive form. again, BYRH --> BYRNYT (capital --> central 
fortification) is the only BH example i know but see also XMH --> XMNYH (sunflower="small sun"), )ZNYH ("small ear").
