I would think it’s the latter, but there are many records (PCC and DLC) with 
the former. There is a sheva under the dalet and the taf has a dagesh and a 
hirik (מוֹלַדְתִּי). As far as I can tell the sheva is not na’ (and if it’s 
merahef, it’s also disregarded per romanization rules), so then why the e after 
the d? We’ve long established that pronunciation is not the arbiter, the 
vocalization is, so what am I missing?

Thanks, Jasmin
