Can someone please explain to me what a quadumvirate is?--The prefessional launchballer is The Duchy of Effenhauer Junior and is very resourceful. 10:23, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Seems like a made up word, based on the latin triumvirate meaning a group of three people, but changed to refer to four people. -- Supermorff 10:44, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
It's because neologisms are cool! :D The Doctor... IS IN Molten Scandium 12:39, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
I think the more appropriate prefix would be quadr-, so the word should be quadrumvirate. You know, because neologisms should still be consistent. -- Supermorff 12:49, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
Oh, and a quick Google search later reveals: http://www.answers.com/quadrumvirate -- Supermorff 12:49, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
Ah, but as television (that's the word, not the media) tells us, etymology is a slippery serpent indeed. ;) The Doctor... IS IN Molten Scandium 12:57, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
Making it almost unique among reptiles. What's wrong with the word 'television' anyway? -- Supermorff 13:05, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
Seems like a made up word.
That word is not made up. I found it in the article.--The prefessional launchballer is The Duchy of Effenhauer Junior and is very resourceful. 14:09, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
I wasn't suggesting you made it up, jeez. And it was a made up word, because the correct word is quadrumvirate, as discussed above. -- Supermorff 15:21, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
Sorry. I hadn't realised that someone had made a spelling error.--The prefessional launchballer is The Duchy of Effenhauer Junior and is very resourceful. 21:51, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
