  • P: Kumenonku > Kumenonhi > Kumenonki
  • 1839-1981: Kumenonhi
  • Discussion: Cowdery first wrote Kumenonku, then Kumenonhi, then Kumenonki in P. The 1830 compositor wrote Kumenonhi. The challenge is that Cowdery often wrote h to look like k. In reality, the k or h spelling both make good arguments, but textual evidence leans towards Kumenonhi.
