I do it this commonly practical way: A schwa in a radical letter I  
consider a lack of vowel, but not in an attachment. For instance,  
לבבך LBBKA (not LE-BABKA), נפשך NAP$KA, הדברים HA- 
DBARIYM, בניכם BNEIKEM, ואבדתם WA-ABADTEM. But, בשבתך  
BE-$IBTKA, ובלכתך U-BE-LEKTKA, to indicate that the letter B is  
here not radical. So also: ולמדתם WE-LIMADTEM.
