Sorry, I meant Biblical pronunciation. I just said that because some Wiktionary pages use Biblical to mean some kind of paleo-reconstructed pronunciation where every ה is pronounced and shvas have different vowel sounds.In Tiberian pronunciation it is /ˌqɔːtˤˈlɔː/. The Tiberians did not pronounce the shva in this case, even though it is a shva na (mobile shva).
We do not know when qamatz turned to /ɔ/, nor do we know what the shva sounded like "right before" that.I guess what I meant was right before qamatz turned into /ɔ/. Is there a specific term for this because it seems like this is generally how Biblical Hebrew pronunciation is presented.
Then the answer is yesWell that's Wikipedia for you. I guess my question is actually whether the typical Biblical Hebrew textbook says that the shva in קָטְלָה is pronounced.
There are different pronunciation traditions of Hebrew. The pronunciation /e/ of shva is associated with the medieval Palestinian tradition (contemporary with Tiberian) and later with Sephardi pronunciation (and perhaps Ashkenazi can be included as well). But in Tiberian and Babylonian pronunciation, and the modern pronunciations of Jews from Yemen, parts of Iraq, and Central Asia, the default pronunciation of the shva is /a/, though it may vary depending on phonetic environment, especially in Tiberian Hebrew.PS: Do you mean that the normal shva : can be pronounced other than /e/ even in later Biblical Hebrew?
