I see from several sources that the word "Christ" should be pronounced with a long I sound, like in "time". However, several minced oaths seem to be constructed to sound like "Christ" with a short I (rhyming with "mist"): for instance, Jiminy Cricket or Judas Priest. Is it a word that changed its pronunciation over time? If so, why do the dictionaries only report the long-I version? Or are these cusswords really not meant to have the same final vowel sound as "Christ"? Thanks in advance.
