  • Discussion: The 1830 compositor probably set the name as Gaddianhi initially under the influence of Gaddianton, which occurred alongside Gaddianton in the text. In 3 Nephi 4:8, Cowdery corrected Giddianhis because it was a double genitive, and erroneously read the army of Giddianhi(')s; see Alma 46:24 for full discussion of double genitives (ATV 4:2548-51; 5:3243).
