Real word or misspelling?[edit]

Perhaps the author of this entry meant anthropoid? Anthropod is not in non-crowdsourced dictionaries I've checked. --Agyle (talk) 10:15, 29 December 2013 (UTC)

anthropod

Etymology:
From Ancient Greek anthrop- "human" + pod "foot"

Definition:

  1. bipedal humanoid

All I can seem to find are a type of creature in science fiction, lots of scannos for arthropod, one or two references to a human-like foot/leg, and a few apparent misspellings of anthropoid. The tricky part is distinguishing instances of this definition from misspellings of anthropoid. Chuck Entz (talk) 15:30, 29 December 2013 (UTC)

Surely is gastropod means having a stomach for a foot, anthropod means something that has a human being for a foot. Awesome. Assuming it fails move to WT:BJAODN. Mglovesfun (talk) 15:39, 29 December 2013 (UTC)
Failed. The closest citable meaning I could find in science fiction was that of a humanoid arthropod. I’m also removing the etymology since apparently that only applies to the disputed sense. — Ungoliant (falai) 15:45, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
