James C Read says:
This could also explain and harmonise the contradiction that we see 
between scholarly reconstruction 'yahweh' 
with archaic theophoric components 'yaho' 
e.g. yahoweh, yah:weh (vocal schewa), yahweh (silent schewa) 

Am I in error to believe that the shewa in YaH:WeH is a silent shewa,
being used as a syllable divider,
in a Hebrew word composed of two closed [i.e. CVC] syllables?
