I think so, generally. Especially at the beginning of words, where there's no constrast between 'alef+vowel...' and just plain 'vowel...' like there is in Arabic. I think in the middle of words, Ashkenazim generally ignore it and Sefardim/Mizrahhim i think enunciate it. -Stephen (Steg) " your house i long to be room by room patiently i'll wait for you there like a stone i'll wait for you there alone..." ~ 'like a stone' by audioslave
