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.
Somewhere on Athos, Antonis groans, and the skulls of the holy brethren with him!

When I see you next, I will certainly beat you up. 
Please don't project meta-debates onto me.

I always ignore it, since I never work with texts old enough for it to be pronounced.
"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

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