Discussion: Probably also Amlikites in O, "which would suggest that Joseph Smith pronounced Amlicites (as well as its base morpheme, the name [[AMLICI|A<small>MLICI</small>]]) with a /''k''/ sound rather than with the /''s''/ sound proposed in the Pronouncing Guide at the back of the 1981 [ [[The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.|LDS]] ] edition" (''[[Royal Skousen, Analysis of Textual Variants in the Book of Mormon. 6 Parts. Provo, Utah: FARMS, Brigham Young University, 2004-2009.|ATV]]'' 3:1605). This seems to be supported by other BofM names like [[AMALEKI|A<small>MALEKI</small>]], [[AMULEK|A<small>MULEK</small>]], etc.

Alma 2:11
P: Amlikites
1830-1981: Amlicites
Alma 2:12

1830-1981: Amlicites

Discussion: Probably also Amlikites in O, "which would suggest that Joseph Smith pronounced Amlicites (as well as its base morpheme, the name AMLICI) with a /k/ sound rather than with the /s/ sound proposed in the Pronouncing Guide at the back of the 1981 [ LDS ] edition" (ATV 3:1605). This seems to be supported by other BofM names like AMALEKI, AMULEK, etc.

Acceptability: Scribal error; Amlicites correct form, but pronounced as Amlikites.

Source: ATV 3:1605-9.

General Summary: Skousen thinks it should be merged with Amalekites to be spelled Amlicites in all instances.
