Hebrew term or phrase: יתדות
כל התנועת משמשות בשיטת עמה''ר בתפקיד כפול: הרגילות שבהן נחשבות להברות פונטיות וגם לתנועות כמותיות. שוואים נעים וחטפים נחשבים להברות פונטיות וגם לראשי יתדות.

ראשי יתדות - carriers for non-syllabic consonants?

in this case ראשי יתדות (rather than יתדות) stand for non-syllabic consonants

"...separate syllables as well as onsets of the complex syllables"
