Hrrm... unfortunately, in that case, i just found a Danube river map, and it looks like it's definitely out of the range of what's marked in the Ashkenazic/Yiddish map in the encyclopedia. You're probably in Sephardic territory, then: Ladino-Speaking Sefardic Pronunciation of Hebrew: same as before, EXCEPT... alef = usually /?/, can also be zero hei = " some communities of the Balkan countries... it varies freely with the realizations of |alef|, that is also with zero." reish = "apical flap or trill" tav = always /t/ shuruq/qubutz = /u/ hholam = /o/ qamatz/patahh = /a/ qamatz-qatan = /o/ segol/tzeireh = /e/~/E/ hhiriq = /i/ shva-na` = /e/~/E/ hhataf-segol = /e/~/E/ hhataf-qomatz = /o/ -Stephen (Steg) "You will begin to touch heaven, Jonathan, in the moment that you touch perfect speed.
