Achairde All: I left this under another topic but having worked with Phonetics I can't help but wondering if any one besides me notice that Xianz can also be pronounced Scions. As in Scions of the Faith. Sorry if it sounds a wee bit geeky but I did warn you about my religious background and studies. Slan leat, Elaine

In the explanation about Xmas you refer to the X as representing Christ's name. You also mention that Xian has been used to abbreviate the word Christian. How is it that Xian can be short for Chritian but Xianz is pronounced "Zans in English". Adding a Z on the end of Xianz shouldn't change how the word is pronounced. I see the Z as a "hip" way of abbreviating the word Christianz which is a variation of the correct spelling, Christians. It seems you're giving contradictory pronunciations for essentially the same word.

Because of these contradictory definitions and pronunciations it makes we wonder if Robbie D is a real person or if "he" is an ID used by several people at Xianz. With the explanations you gave you're contradicting yourself more than a Mormon or Jehovah's Witness. (My apologies to our Mormon and Jehovah's Witness friends, but y'all do contradict yourselves a lot.)
