Possibly. The latter is the spelling we used in the Republic, but you're right that the former looks more linguistically correct.

Ah, if it's been in use already then I of course rescind my objection.


Wait, TalossaWiki says the spelling was Tanáischteu. What gives?

I honestly don't have a clue. The Wiki is not to be trusted, too many people edit that miéida and some of them have a trolling/disinformation agenda. And the Republic Witt is offline so I can't check it out. I advise you to use your best judgement.

Miestra, you're the source.  Don't you remember the whole discussion about the title?
Bitter struggles deform their participants in subtle, complicated ways. ― Zadie Smith
Revolution is an art that I pursue rather than a goal I expect to achieve. ― Robert Heinlein

Since clearly I don't remember, and Republic Witt is down, I endorse Tánischteu as the reformed spelling.

I found something:

Quote from: Miestră in 2014
Eric: the Talossan word I chose for Opposition leader - amazed that there was none in the formal dictionary - was tanáischteu, from the Irish meaning "successor" or "alternative".

I think Tanaischteu (no accent mark since leaving it out wouldnt change the pronunciation) is good.
