Why does the prefix vowel change from chametz to sheva, please? Is it because of the suffix, and if so, how does that work?
It is because of the suffix. It was in an originally open position, and in the antepenult, requiring a vocal shewa. I’m currently working on a series of videos explaining how vowels change when adding suffixes.
Thanks, that would be great.
