oleum phosphoratum[edit]

Is this Latin or translingual or what? The obsolete tag seems redundant, given Latin is almost never used now. Mglovesfun (talk) 19:07, 2 March 2010 (UTC)

It's Latin, yes, and so should not have an "obsolete" tag. Howver, it's New Latin, since the white phosphorous allotrope was unknown prior to about 1669. --EncycloPetey 23:58, 20 March 2010 (UTC)
