שלום!

What does be-um'am mean? I think it's pronounced with be-, not ba-, but I'm not sure. Here's the context:

X: נשרף שלט על גשר בבעיל. שמעת?
Y: בעומעם. רק הרחתי את זה.

    Adverbs formed from adjectives with the preposition ב, are always be- and not ba-.

    That said, in this case, in formal Hebrew it's bim'um'am because of the shva.
