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">[http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=YCBrAAAAMAAJ&q=%2Bagnoea&dq=%2Bagnoea&hl=en&ei=WSAxTsW6FMix8QP_yrWhDg&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=5&ved=0CDcQ6AEwBDgK This] suggests that you may have better luck attesting {{term||agnea}}, but I'd have more faith in {{term|agnoia|lang=en}} (see [http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=4XlVAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA57&dq=%2Bagnoia&hl=en&ei=5yIxTqX0Mojg0QHb6vz2Cw&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=1&ved=0CC0Q6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=%2Bagnoia&f=false], [http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=WP8OAQAAIAAJ&pg=PA18&dq=%2Bagnoia&hl=en&ei=5yIxTqX0Mojg0QHb6vz2Cw&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=2&ved=0CDIQ6AEwAQ#v=onepage&q=%2Bagnoia&f=false], [http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=jlZBAAAAcAAJ&pg=PT53&dq=%2Bagnoia&hl=en&ei=5yIxTqX0Mojg0QHb6vz2Cw&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=3&ved=0CDcQ6AEwAg#v=onepage&q=%2Bagnoia&f=false], [http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=YPUGAAAAcAAJ&pg=PA18&dq=%2Bagnoia&hl=en&ei=5yIxTqX0Mojg0QHb6vz2Cw&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=4&ved=0CDwQ6AEwAw#v=onepage&q=%2Bagnoia&f=false], [http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=lFEPAQAAMAAJ&pg=PA301&dq=%2Bagnoia&hl=en&ei=5yIxTqX0Mojg0QHb6vz2Cw&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=5&ved=0CEEQ6AEwBA#v=onepage&q=%2Bagnoia&f=false]</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)
 
 
== [[extatic]] ==
 
 
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)
