Itacism
Itacism I"ta*cism, n. [Cf. F. itacisme. See {Etacism}, and cf. {Iotacism}.] (Greek Gram.) Pronunciation of [eta] (eta) as the modern Greeks pronounce it, that is, like e in the English word be. This was the pronunciation advocated by Reuchlin and his followers, in opposition to the etacism of Erasmus. See {Etacism}. [1913 Webster]

In all such questions between [epsilon] and [alpha][iota] the confusing element of itacism comes in. --Alford. [1913 Webster]
