The word "podalyriifola" is misspelled. Can you tell what I did wrong?

That's right, it needs another "i".

(Proofreading in Latin, it turns out, is not as much fun as I thought it'd be.)

What in Hades is that?
Um, can you define it and then spell it correctly, cuase, not sure where you're gonna put the 'i'.

And, while I'm here asking, why are you proofreading Latin?

your word for the day
If I told you the 'i' went towards the end, you'd probably figure out that this has something to do with the biological classification of plants. Specifically, the word describes having leaves like those found in the genus Podalyria (eliptical, silver, and possibly hairy -- I'm not sure on that last point).

But really, that wouldn't be half as fun as the mystery.

The "why" should be self evident -- Latin doesn't proofread itself, you know!
