None of the spellings, encyclopedia, encyclopaedia, or encyclopædia is formally a misspelling. Historically, however, the latter two represent a very old spelling mistake. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the spelling with the ae or æ is “pseudo-Greek” and “an erroneous form (said to be a false reading) occurring in MSS. of Quintilian, Pliny, and Galen”. The OED notes that the æ is not found in the original Greek enkyklios paideia for “encyclical education”, described as “the circle of arts and sciences considered by the Greeks as essential to a liberal education”.

The OED asserts that the spelling with æ “has been preserved from becoming obsolete by the fact that many of the works so-called have Latin titles, as Encyclopædia Britannica”. That particular encyclopedia includes the ligature form æ in its official name.

At least half the citations in the OED are for the so-called “incorrect” spelling. Neither the OED nor Webster’s Third New International Dictionary states a preference, although the British OED puts the æ form first, and the American Webster’s puts it second.”

  1. Thanks For Your Valuable Share. Waiting For Your Next Article….

  2. Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!|

      I use WordPress – great for blogging – Drupal is great if you need different types of permissions, and Joomla is great for the many extensions and adaptability. Dont over think it though, most CMS platforms will achieve whatever you want to do.

  3. There is apparently a lot to realize about this. I think you made some nice points in features also.

  4. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and everything. However think about if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this website could certainly be one of the greatest in its field. Awesome blog!
