for those willing to take an educated guess:

how would you expect the three variations of attah

to pattern, relative to (1) accents, (2) syntax and/or (3) prosody?
(hint: it's systematic).

i'm asking because i really want to take a straw poll of those who
work with hebrew grammar, so please think about it and get back to me.
