See also: aëtheogamous
aetheogamous (not comparable)
- Being ultimately derived from the two vowels ἀή (aḗ) (alpha-eta: aē), rather than the diphthong αἰ (ai) (alpha-iota: ai), the initial ae- of aetheogamous can only properly be written as two separate letters (ae), with a diaeresis atop the e (as aëtheogamous) being optional; the spellings *ætheogamous and *etheogamous are, therefore, erroneous.
- “aetheogamous, a.” listed in the Oxford English Dictionary [2nd Ed.; 1989]
