Anglicanizing words
« on: March 17, 2017, 03:20:58 PM »
I know it's better to use the language toolkit when you can, but just out of curiosity, is there an accepted way to Anglicanize a word with an iota subscript?
Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

You can either ignore it or written "oi" or "ai" or the like though that can be confusing with nominative plurals.

That was my thought.

I guess the answer is to not be lazy and just install the Teknia kit already.

Somewhat unrelated, but I once read a document in Katharevousa which transliterated "Arizona" with an iota subscript at the end. It brought me a lot of joy.
You sound like a professional who knows what he's talking about.  That's because you are.

When I see you next, I will certainly beat you up. 
Just grab them by prayer.


Mor has spoken through George... this is the faith of the fathers!

I was reassured all of the bullies would work for me someday!

I always ignore it, since I never work with texts old enough for it to be pronounced.
"Behold, the mystical sacrifice, fully accomplished, is ushered in. In fervent faith let us draw near, that we may become sharers in everlasting life. Alleluia."

Please pray for myself, my family and my friends.

I have a former coach working for me. Wholly unsatisfying.
