Discussion: Probably also Amlikites in [[Original Manuscript of the Book of Mormon.|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.
