In the meantime, a bit of linguistic foolishness came up that I am going to air again. Which is to say: As far as I have been able to determine, until D&D came out in 1974, there simply was no such word as "pegasus" with a lower case "p", meant to indicate a species of winged horses. Prior to that, "Pegasus" meant a specific winged stallion, and winged horses in general were called "winged horses". As a result of this, I tend to rail whenever anyone pluralizes "pegasus" as "pegasi". It is an absurd plural of a neologism. It would be more correct to refer to winged horses as "Pegasians", but I fear that horse has long since left the barn.
