The "Shin" and "Samech"


Should there not be a distinction between the pronunciation of the letter "sin" and "samech"?


Shalom Rav,

I have heard of this theory.

The samekh and the sin are pronounced identically by all 'edhoth of 'Am Yisrael.

It is reasonable to assume that once there was a difference, but without a living M'sora it is impossible to be certain.

Hazaq uVarukh,
