Is בטבריה (the name of an Israeli city) pronounced with the stress on the first syllable (TVER-ya) or the last (tver-YA)? On Wiktionary it says that the stress is on the last syllabe but today I heard a person say בטבריה, and each time he clearly put the stress on "ver": bet-VER-ya.

אני מודה לכם

    Wait a minute. You're saying that when speaking formally not only do you move the stress to the end but you also change the pronunciation of ב־ from be to bi?
