From: Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913)

 I·ta·cism n.  Greek Gram. Pronunciation of η (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.
    In all such questions between ε and αι the confusing element of itacism comes in.   --Alford.
