Pronouncing the Tetragrammaton

During my Bible college and seminary experience, some of my professors would  pronounce the Tetragrammaton (transliterated YHWH) as Yahweh and others would use Adonai or Lord. And during one written project in my doctoral studies I deliberately tried to  avoid the controversy by using only the Tetragrammaton but still got dinged for it. Haaretz has a pretty good article here on the the issue from a Jewish perspective. (Please note that Haaretz sometimes restricts access to their articles but I was able to access it.)
