I don't think you can do that, though there are infixes of course...
try an experiment: one three-consonant root and two different vowel-infixes
and make an interlinear with them:
bcd aebcd abecd baced
etc. to see if it works out. Can't help you myself as the harddisk that
held all my shoebox-things (including the lexicon for Taruven) went ka-
boom as I was backing it all up this summer.
