Kiwi's right. Saw it the other day in a paper, still not quite sure what it means but it's a cool word.

I was thinking it was crustas..eans... like the shell first, only spelled better. Good thing it's not crustas...ans...

creteceous... Ugh, I can't even spell that one!


EDIT: Shell first? Really? What's wrong with me?! Shell fish. Fish. Not that it was crustaceans(?) anyway. :P

Yup, that's right! Lovely word, meaning languages that are read left-to-right, then right-to-left, on alternate lines. From the Greek boustrophedos, "as the ox ploughs".

You're up Mxy!!
