Variant spelling of ANI-ANTI

-Alma 21:11

P: Anianti > Ani Anti >+ ANI-ANTI 1852 1879 1888 1902-1907 1911 1920 1981

A: Ani-anti 1830 – 1849 1858W RLDS 1908

Discussion: Cowdery first spelled it as Anianti, immediately changed it to Ani Anti, later inserted a hyphen to become ANI-ANTI in P; set by the 1830 compositor to Ani-anti in A. There is evidence that Anti is a distinct morpheme, as in ANTI-NEPHI-LEHI. The hyphen is used as in the names SHEAR-JASHUB and MAHER-SHALAL-HASH-BAZ, which do not have their following words capitalized because they are sentences in Hebrew.

Acceptability: Skousen accepts ANI-ANTI
