  1. Why does the chametz on שָׁלוֹם change to a sheva, please, when the pronominal suffix is added?

    OK – having looked it up – my answer: 1) it is in construct state, because in construct relationship with the suffix; then EITHER 2) look up the construct state in lexicon; OR 3) שָׁ is an open syllable, and the vowel will take the shortest form it can, chametz is tone long and not unchangeable, shortest form here is a vocal sheva.

    Is that about right?
