Spelling The changed ending ‘thalassemum’ is introduced by Stephen & Edmonds (1972:459) as if it first appeared in Fisher (1946), but Fisher (several times in his article) uses the unchanged spelling Thalassema thalassema. Presumably Stephen & Edmonds regarded 'thalassema' as a modifiable adjective, but it is a noun in apposition (Nishikawa 1998). Possibly Stephen had used this variant spelling earlier than 1972, but he does not include an earlier usage in the 1972 synonymy. [details]
