well, I hate to be a nerdy pedant (seeing as we were talking about them on Ducky's blog)... but it should be foetus, not fetus. I can't stand it when people screw about with medical terms, especially Greek words which have been around for millenia.

just started to read that post. so far so interesting!

Speedy! It's a latin word and according to my trusty Macquarie dictionary either is acceptable usage in Australia. But just for you, I will use foetus in future.

Latin? really. well, poop to me... heh. it's interesting that either is acceptable, and ta for looking it up, Kate. in general I've found that the US spell it without the o and the rest of us do. I love the oe and ae in words, I think they look heaps more elegant, but then, I'm a snob!
