Since the cantillation is used for reading, and the name is read as Ad-nai,  
with three syllables, I don't think the cantillation has any relevance to the  
pronunciation of the tetragrammaton.

I was  wondering if anyone on the list would like to
comment on the cantillation  marks found over YHWH in
Psalm 96:10, and if anyone feels that these  marks
could dictate a tri-syllabic pronunciation of YHWH
when cantoring  this passage.
