encylopædic[edit]

This is a very rare misspelling; the only three citations I could find are on the corresponding citations page. All three forms (i.e., monographic, digraphic, and ligated) spelt encylo- are <1% as common as the corresponding standard encyclo- forms, so, per convention governing comparative frequencies of misspellings, I call for this entry's deletion. — Raifʻhār Doremítzwr ~ (U · T · C) ~ 10:55, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

You created this entry. In doing so, did you mean to create encyclopædic? It looks like a typo to me. --Mglovesfun (talk) 11:02, 8 June 2011 (UTC)
It was a year and a half ago, so I have no memory of creating the entry, and I can't now fathom why I created it. I believe this nomination can be treated as my disowning it. — Raifʻhār Doremítzwr ~ (U · T · C) ~ 11:43, 8 June 2011 (UTC)
Delete. Typos of this sort should be moved to a ditionary. bd2412 T 15:43, 8 June 2011 (UTC)
Is this a typo or just a very rare alternative form? We only keep common misspellings, but if it's the latter then it's worth keeping as cited. DAVilla 15:02, 10 June 2011 (UTC)
Typo I think. From what Raifʻhār Doremítzwr's said, he has no recollection of making the entry. I think it's just a typo. If he'd have put {{d}} on the entry I'd have deleted it on the spot. --Mglovesfun (talk) 15:19, 10 June 2011 (UTC)

Deleted. — Raifʻhār Doremítzwr ~ (U · T · C) ~ 21:45, 12 June 2011 (UTC)
