Books results are scannos, or "hip hopologist". DTLHS (talk) 22:30, 23 November 2012 (UTC)

Well, there's this one. It seems to be a real word, but rather specialized- and thus very rare online. There are hits for hopology, and a few non-durable web uses for the word itself, but I'm not finding enough for CFI. Chuck Entz (talk) 23:21, 23 November 2012 (UTC)
Just found the real reason it's so rare: the correct term is hoplology, which does have cites. Looks like it needs to be moved, and an entry created for hoplology (see w:Hoplology). Chuck Entz (talk) 23:29, 23 November 2012 (UTC)
Meh, moved to RFD as a rare misspelling. Wiktionary is not a list of all possible errors. Mglovesfun (talk) 19:04, 26 November 2012 (UTC)
I'd say keep. The misspelling gets enough hits on Google, and many people are unlikely to realize it's a misspelling due to the correct form's rarity/non-inclusion in spellcheckers. Hence keeping "hopologist" as a misspelling entry might be helpful. Astral (talk) 20:06, 26 November 2012 (UTC)
Meh, kept. Change it into a hard redirect if you like. - -sche (discuss) 05:30, 7 February 2013 (UTC)
