Conkling argues that the Amlicites of Alma 2–3 are the same group as the Amalekites, who appear suddenly, without explanation, in Alma 21, and that Oliver Cowdery simply used a different spelling of the same word dictated by Joseph Smith.
- Benjamin McMurtry, “The Amlicites and Amalekites: Are They the Same People?,” Interpreter: A Journal of Mormon Scripture 25 (2017): 269–81. McMurtry disagrees with Conkling and argues that that the Amlicites and Amalekites are, indeed, two separate groups.
