So is everyone saying that this place name has never been considered
as a single word?
All that aside is anyone aware of any attestations to the
pronunciation of this place name?
Maybe you didn't see my post: "After the Akeidah, Abraham called it Yireh"
We learn from a Midrash:
"The original name of the place was Shalem - the name given it by
Shem, son of Noah - whom the sages identify with Malchitzedek, king
of Jerusalem. After the Akeidah, Abraham called it Yireh. In
deference to both Shem and Abraham, G-d synthesized both names and
called it Yerushalayim"
