On a similar vein, I (and other Eastern Canadains / Ontarians) swear that we learned to spell dilemma as 'dilemna'. It wasn't until Michael Pollan's book came out that I realised the error of my ways.

@Kosmonaut If you can post an answer from OED I think that's more useful than depending on QuizMonster's answer from another site. That person doesn't cite any actual references.

And my Chicago Manual of Style sits in the basement of my parent's house about 4000km away. Thanks! :)

Where else but on a StackExchange site could you have access to information like that? :)
