Etymology[edit]

The etymology was changed to δέκα + καί + τρεῖς; to me it seems counterintuitive to list the root words in this manner. Obviously, the word is not dekaitrisphobia or something to that effect. Oughtn't the etymology thus be τρεῖς + καί + δέκα? If not, could someone please explain why? Thank you. Medellia 03:25, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
