    Pre-1917 spelling question

    In 1800 how would spelling взятіе as взятие be considered? a glaring error? an informalism? an arbitrary choice?
    thanks!

    Такие вопросы имеют больше шансов получить хороший ответ на Лингвофоруме. Там есть специалисты по истории языка.

    Вопрос топистартера был в том, что слово по старой орфографии должно быть как раз через i, но было написано через и по какой-то причине.

    Yes, but you were supposed to use i before a vowel.
