First spotted in The Paris Review

“Periodic Table of Ethereal Elements”
by Lucie Brock-Broido
Issue no. 154 (Spring 2000)


Some kind of autocorrect artefact?

Searched and found from contexts it would be a common form of spelling “earthward”

Sounds like a place I would like to visit.

Made me search the OED where I found eanling: a young lamb; kid.

And so for day 2767
