Hey, that reminds me. Inquiring minds want to know. Howzacome you still use the
Latin digraph when you spell "amoeba" and, usually, though not always,
"archaeology" but omit it in "palaeontology", "haematology", "encyclopaedia",

Mind you, in Canada, as usual, we're all mixed up. You rarely see "paediatrics"
except, e.g.,  in the title of the "Canadian  Paediatric Society", and their
journal, "Paediatrics and Child Health",  and you never see oestrogen (estrogen)
or many of the other oe words like you do outside North America. And my doctor
calls the big lumps I get on my head "hematomas" in his reports, not "haematomas"
(let alone "haematomae").  But, bygum, it's still caesium in my liberum, not

JWR and I will have to jaw-jaw on that one and we'll get baeck to yoeu.
