What's the correct pronunciation of אריה? Ahr-yeh or Ahr-ee-yeh? Thanks

(To make sure, the stress is on the last syllable.) According to the niqqud, it's /ar-yeh/ (שווא at the "ר"). But I, a native Hebrew speaker, pronounce the same thing even if I try to make the difference. I'll be actually suprised if English speakers (don't know if you're one) make an acoustic difference. If you think you make a difference, and you can prove it by having someone else succeeding to say correctly what you intended when you say it several times in both ways, I'll be interested!

ድብ and dov. The same letter.

Well, the word in Amharic is certainly a direct relative. The Ethiopian subgroup of the Semitic languages always lack a bit of attention, so it is nice,when someone sees these connections.
