Incorrect etymology[edit]

The etymology is listed as "Coined between 1820 and 1830 from Latin aberrāns" but the word is listed 57 years earlier than this in a 1763 edition of The Royal English dictionary (see http://books.google.com/books?id=GucIAAAAQAAJ&pg=PT32&dq=%22aberrant%22&hl=en&ei=fnKjTaTiBofMgQf4r6TaBQ&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=1&ved=0CC4Q6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=%22aberrant%22&f=false ) so this statement is incorrect. --DaveC 69.166.21.170 21:41, 11 April 2011 (UTC)
