Yah is indeed found as an alternative for Yahweh, but my point still stands -
it is never found without the written <h>.  Indeed, in some places there is a
sign which indicates it must be pronounced.


>>> `h' is merely a mater lectionis?

>> In most cases where a mater lectionis is used, there are spellings with and
>> without the letter, but y-h-w is never found for the name of God.

> But Ya is.
