Hi people,

I was in Deal NJ this weekend (where many NYC Syrian Jews summer);
a friend there told me that many Aleppo Jews used to pronounce the word
kiddush as "'edush", and that this was adopted from Baghdadi Jews who had
moved to Aleppo.

Is anyone familiar with this? How and why would kof be pronounced this way?
