Hi Pilcrow. I checked for this and *{{term||agnoea}} and could find nothing except [[Citations:Agnoea|these]], which seem to refer to some Classical Greek personage. <span class="plainlinks">[ This] suggests that you may have better luck attesting {{term||agnea}}, but I'd have more faith in {{term|agnoia|lang=en}} (see [], [], [], [], []</span>, and many others); compare {{term|paranœa|lang=en}} and {{term|paranoia|lang=en}}. That said, most instances of {{term||agnoia}} seem to be mentioned transliterations of the Ancient Greek {{term|sc=polytonic|ἄγνοια|tr=agnoia|lang=grc}}, employed in any number of technical and philosophic senses, as shown [[Citations:agnoia|here]]. Good luck, anyway. — Raifʻhār Doremítzwr ~ ([[User:Doremítzwr|U]] · [[User talk:Doremítzwr|T]] · [[Special:Contributions/Doremítzwr|C]]) ~ 09:16, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
:¶ Hullo. I tried searching for “agnœa”, “agnoea”, “agncea” and “agnrea” (to look for mis‐scans); none of those turn’d up any relevant usages for [[agnœa]]. This spelling is almost certainly utilised in dictionaries only. I could attempt to look for ‘agnoia’ later, but would [[entring]] that term de‐commission [[agnœa]] from the dictionary‐only appendix? --[[User:Pilcrow|Pilcrow]] 14:13, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
:: I think it would, I'm afraid, because that appendix is for lemmata only, to the best of my knowledge. I think you could justifiably list it as an alternative form in that entry, however, given that so many dictionaries lemmatise it. — Raifʻhār Doremítzwr ~ ([[User:Doremítzwr|U]] · [[User talk:Doremítzwr|T]] · [[Special:Contributions/Doremítzwr|C]]) ~ 14:19, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

I think the hits on Google Groups are misspellings (because of all the other common words in ''ex-'' like ''excited'', ''exceptional'', etc.); many people have trouble spelling this word. I've added a misspelling line to the entry. [[User:Equinox|Equinox]] [[User_talk:Equinox|◑]] 08:20, 19 August 2011 (UTC)
