I expect the khataph qamets may not appear correctly. It is the vowel
that combines the qamets and shewa into one vowel.
The khataph qamets is pronounced like the long *o* in boat, so the word
is pronounced /ah o KHAL/ (emphasis on /KHAL/.
Hosea 11:4 )okiyl is "I fed," the hiphil yiqtol of the root AKL.
(You only see both the aleph prefix meaning "I" *and* the aleph root
letter in the hophal stem, I think.)
