Dear Harry, Andrew V. et al.,
I am not much on Germanic languages, but I have noticed that recent literature
features a change in the diacritical mark in the name of the great Danish
malacologist, Otto Andreas Lawson Moerch (1828-1878). Malacologists have been
dutifully placing an umlaut over the "o" of his surname for over a century.
Apparently that's not de rigeur (see; I DO know a little French). Some
contemporary writers have eschewed Mörch in favor of Mørch. Can anyone confirm
that these revisionists are correct in this action? European subscribers,
linguists, anyone? Also what do you call the / in ø?
