mushroomoid

Probably exists, but not sure it means that. Ƿidsiþ 07:03, 16 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Hmm. I was about to delete it on sight, but found two real usages on a Google book search. Difficult to know exactly what they mean though. SemperBlotto (talk) 07:06, 16 June 2012 (UTC)
    • In X-ray examination, cystoid degeneration (41.4%), mushroomoid degeneration (35. 4%), and deformtive osteoarthritis were frequently detected
    • The exact form of the indented central panel is also unique, although it bears a distant relation to those pieces with mushroomoid indentations on the vertical axis.
    • It looks like the definition is correct. -oid is a common suffix. My person preference is "having" rather than "in," but perhaps it makes no difference.... --BB12 (talk) 19:01, 16 June 2012 (UTC)
      • I think we should treat the QI transcript like we treat Google Books. If Google Books were to disappear tomorrow, the printed versions of the books would still exist. If that website disappeared tomorrow, would there be a written/printed version of it somewhere? Mglovesfun (talk) 19:04, 16 June 2012 (UTC)
        • It is reasonable to expect that there would be copies of the show (the studio and at least one library somewhere are sure to keep copies), which (not the transcript per se) is what counts. - -sche (discuss) 02:11, 17 June 2012 (UTC)
I formated SemperBlotto's citations and put them on the Citations page (thanks for finding them). I also tracked down a recording of the show (on Youtube), so I can verify the correctness of the transcript and have added that citation, making this cited, I think. - -sche (discuss) 02:27, 17 June 2012 (UTC)
Passed. - -sche (discuss) 02:29, 30 September 2012 (UTC)
