No, no,  the case I have in mind is very different. I have a huge abbrev list
which expands hebrew words to hebrew words with niqqud, like 

שלום -->     שָלֹם 

So sometimes I want to delete the niqqud. 

One might argue that I would be better off to write a short trans-tab
which replaces the niqqud by "nothing", but I got curious whether I
could use an inverse abbrev function.
