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 the 1830. 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.
