Ben,
With 1.2, you should compare 3.2, which in fact does have the ALEF for )el.
I think this is little more than a euphonic variation rather than a serious
textual problem.
Perhaps you know of my article “Why Jonah Is Read On Yom Kippur,” Central
Conference of American Rabbis Journal (Summer 1998): 84-99.
Good luck with Jonah.
Charles
