Well, this is the perfectly regular construct form of |biirh| [bIx_j]: dog,
made by adding a |h| in front of the first letter of the word. But of course,
since Maggel speakers are unlike anybody else, they pronounce the digraph |hb|
as [D] :)) . I'd guess some time ago they pronounced it [v] but it retracted
somewhat (the opposite change from the common Cockney [T]->[f] sound change).
Whether it's plausible is besides the point ;)))) .
Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
