Rule for a-h-a?

I can’t for the life of me remember how to write this combination. How, for example, would you write the Bible name Rahab?

I’m sure I must have learned it, but I’ve got a mind block. The two a’s together look very awkward. Thanks for any help.

  1. I don't know how other editions would write it, but this is how I would write it in Notehand, borrowing a vowel indicator for the first A.  I couldn't figure out how to insert an image in this comment section, so I'll send you to my Flickr account:


    1. Looks like my comment is "under moderation," probably because I included an external link.  Carlos will have to give it approval.

      I don't know of any rule, at least not in Notehand.  I'm not sure about the other editions.

  2. "Rahab" would be written just like "Abraham":

    I understand there is a difference in pronunciation in the two vowels of the name, but I wouldn’t complicate the outline by writing the long a sound and the ligature, and separating the two syllables.
