δ forms[edit]

Alongside the α (after the Medieval Latin embryo), β (after the stem (embryōn-) of the Medieval Latin embryo), and γ (after the Ancient Greek ἔμβρυον (émbruon)) forms, δ forms (after the stem (ἔμβρυ- (émbru-)) of the Ancient Greek ἔμβρυον (émbruon)), which would take forms like embry and embrye in the singular and embries and embryes in the plural, probably exist (in case anyone wants to go looking for them). — Raifʻhār Doremítzwr ~ (U · T · C) ~ 20:35, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

It may be that ε forms (after the Latin embryum, variant of embryon with a Latinised ending), which would take forms like embryum and embrium in the singular and embrya, embria and embryums, embriums in the plural, also exist, but a quick glance at google books:"embryum" shows only use as a species epithet in the Latin of binomial nomenclature. — Raifʻhār Doremítzwr ~ (U · T · C) ~ 19:51, 2 May 2012 (UTC)
