with regards to Eduardo saying
<quote> the most likely pronunciation of YHWH is: Ieoua </quote>
and Rolf saying
<quote> IAW probably stands for /iahu/, /iehu/, /iaho/ or /ieho/ </quote>
Just how do you pronounce Ieoua, iahu, iehu, etc.,
Provided answers to be in IPA, or at least give the IPA names for the letter
sounds (ie voiced bilabial fricative - BTW the B, in Greek, IABE would in
late Roman times be pronounced like this, as it merged with U (=W) which had
also became a voiced bilabial fricative).
BTW is Ieoua legal in Scrabble?
