Well, my position is that the final he of YHWH is in fact silent.
I agree. It's starting to look like the original tri-consanantal root was
HWY/HWW with a final H in the present form which serves only to lengthen
the final vowel, which we are still unsure of.
Peter proposes a long 'eh' as in Yahweh
While tri-syllabic supporters propose the long 'aa' of Yahowah.
Peter! Can you run me through the long 'eh' reasoning again? I still haven't
quite got the grasp of it.
