Thanks Roger.

The score (so far):

Me, USGS, Webster's vs. Degenkolb and "Dictionary of Civil Engineering" by
John S. Scott

I'm feelin' pretty good right now with my test score. Heh, heh, heh.

I think I even spelled "seismic" correctly :o)

||After the Landers EQ, I called USGS at Menlo Park to find out

||_aseismic_, isn't it?"
||
||Looks like USGS sides with you, Bill.
||
||BTW, my "Webster's Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary" has the following
||definition:
||
||"a-   prefix [L & Gk; L, fr. Gk --- more at UN-]: not:
||without: <asexual>"
||
||Webster's also agrees with you, Bill.
