Subject: RE: Hebrew/ Yiddish/ Ladino songs
Your comment about "beta", Speed, is why I said it should be non-dipthongal. Unfortunately the sound doesn't exist in English (at least in any pronunciation I know of).

I once asked about the meaning of "sheynis" in a Jewish prayer (that will be sung on Rosh Hashanah a week from Thursday, incidentally). Are you about to tell me?
