Hi again,

Do all geminate roots in the ground stem (qal) have infinitives of the form laqol, such as לסוב and לקל (from סבב and קל)?

Toda raba

    A few have an alternate infinitive of the form לקטול (which is the infinitive for non-geminate roots), such as גזז: lagoz and ligzoz.

    But I don’t know of any geminate roots that have only the לקטול infinitive.
