Hallelujah vs. Alleluia

This post is brought to you by all the Easter messages in my e-mailbox and Twitter feed on this fine Easter Sunday.

Without going into the mind-numbingly boring details, hallelujah is from Hebrew הַלְּלוּיָהּ and "hallelujah" or "hallelu jah" is the more only correct transliteration. If you can help it, use the spelling hallelujah, not the Hellenized alleluia.
