Subject: Pronunciation of 'Talitha'
Author: Bill   (guest,

Can anyone give me the correct, or at least the accepted, pronunciation of 'Talitha'? The Biblical usage (Mark 5:41 in the King James Version) gives the vocalization as TAL-i-tha. Several academic references concur. Yet it seems that some people prefer, indeed insist, that it be pronounced ta-LITH-a. Is there any consensus on this, one way or the other? It's such a lovely name with such rich connotations that I would dearly like to know how to pronounce it. Thanks.
