be used to refer to groups of additional rules to be applied. Verb typologies distinguished:
||R1, R2, R3 do not equal hamza/wāw/yā' and R2 does not equal R3
||R2 and R3 are equal
||one of R1, R2 and R3 equals hamza
||R1 equals wāw or yā'
||R2 equals wāw or yā'
||R3 equals wāw or yā'
||both R1,R3 or R2,R3 equal wāw or yā'
||any combination of the above typologies
