Amlicites / Amlikites Variant
Variant spelling of 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.
