I don't remember if it said specifically.  It was made more complex because
there was a pronunciation guide for all the different sounds, and then there
was the listing of words that had emphasis added.  The assumption was that
you'd read the pronunciation guide first.  I sort of remember that it was
the EE sound, but that might just have been MY assumption based on other
Arabic-flavored text....
