Todah rabah. But it is actually the meaning of the root that I'm mostly interested in. Never mind, I'll look it up in the dictionary... I just did it. All the words somehow carry the idea of putting something together. I wonder if this root has anything to do with the origin of the word "archive" (old documents put together).
That is from the lack of emphasis in the "h" sound in "היא" (or maybe that sound wasn't recorded), and the way the first word flows into the second, which then makes it hard to recognize the second word. So it is a challenge; we may need to recognize the second word before the first word becomes intelligible. Fortunately the recording allows us to practice repeatedly.
When I try to "hear" it your way, I'm stuck on what comes next, because I can't separate "ma" from "r" (I can't imagine pronouncing "ima rkiva"), and neither "imarkiva mishkafayim" nor "imar kiva mishkafayim" sounds like anything I've learned.
