The simple answer is that the Tanakh doesn't always follow the rules of
grammar, which were formulated hundreds of years later. For sacred texts, oral
tradition overrules grammatical precision.

Subject: [Heb-NACO] grammar question
I am chanting chapters 5-8 of Shir ha-shirim this coming Shabat.
I have a grammar question.
The text in Shir ha-shirim has "אַשְׁקְךָ֙ מִיַּ֣יִן הָרֶ֔קַח"
My question is why is there a pataḥ under the first yud instead of a tsere.
I have checked several different editions of the Tanakh as well as
According to Even-Shoshan and Luaḣ ha-Shemot יין in סמיכות would have a
"tsere" under the 1st yud.
