Do we call these animals polyamonds or polyiamonds? The former is the logical yield of back-formation from di-amond, which may be why Alan Peakall selected polyamond in the first place (see the revision history). However, polyiamond is generally accepted in the literature and preferred (by a 30:1 ratio) on the Internet. We are not trying to reinvent the English language here, so I'm moving to polyiamond.

I added the 12 Hexiamonds as they constitute a puzzle which has some solutions by placing them in a 6x6 parallelogram divided in 72 equilateral triangles. I refer to it from the trivia section of the pentomino article and link to this page. Hoverfish 20:39, 28 September 2006 (UTC)

Polytetrahedra are not mathematically interesting[edit]

I removed a statement regarding the mathematical interest in polytetrahedra since it was an opinion (and may even be correct) but it is not an encyclopedic fact. Paul D. Anderson 20:35, 21 December 2006 (UTC)
