ר Resh, the twentieth letter of the alphabet. It interchanges with ל, v. ל; with ד, e. g. גָּרַר a. גָּרַד, צָרַד a. צָרַר.—It is frequently inserted between the first and the second radical letters, forming Parel verbs or nouns, e.g. גַּרְבֵּל, קִרְסֵם, שַׁרְבִיט. It is sometimes a formative letter added at the end, e. g. חֲלֵיטַר, קִנְטֵר.—ר dropped at the end, e. g. אֲמִי = אֲמַר.
