It has been long stated that Ḥayyuj pronounced Tiberian qamaṣ. However, according to his grammatical works one may find evidence that, in fact, Ḥayyuj recognized Sephardic qamaṣ; namely, the difference in pronunciation between qamaṣ and pataḥ has been blurred, as is shown in Ḥayyuj's discussions of forms such as נאסף beside נאסף, הצורים and הסורים, והמם as against והמם, etc.
