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. t., grateful for data failure insurance - but oh the bureaucracy!
