According to the Grammar of Joüon translated by Muraoka (par. 26.2),
"Word-initial yod + hireq, properly 'yi', seems to have been pronounced
simply as 'i', at least in certain schools, an so in Contemporary Israeli
Hebrew." See the name Yishay written with initial aleph instead of yod in
1Cr 2,13. This grammar also quotes Quimhi.
