Is this quote right?[edit]

"2000, Anthony Howard and Jason Cowley, Decline and Fall, New Statesman, March 13, 2000 In the mid-1950s we both wrote for the same weekly, where her contributions were a good deal more serious and less flippent than mine."

Is "flippent" an alternative spelling, should it be [sic], or is it a typo? Trebawa 18:32, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

An inquiry like this would more likely get answered as an WT:RFV or at WT:TR. __meco 08:43, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Circular etymology currently proposed. 'flippant' says "from flip" whereas 'flip' says "from flippant".
