Bayliss proposed to change a number of mineral groups to suffix-nomenclature names; the proposal was taken over and approved by the CNMNC:
According to the current CNMNC procedures and guidelines on mineral nomenclature (Nickel and Grice, 1998), names should consist of one word only.
According to the current CNMNC procedures and guidelines on mineral nomenclature (Nickel and Grice, 1998), hyphens are used in mineral names to connect suffixed symbols, such as poly-type suffixes and Levinson modifiers, and the use of a hyphen to distinguish a prefix from the root name is to be discouraged, but where an unhyphenated name is awkward and a hyphen assists in deciphering the name, it may be used, e.g., bario-orthojoaquinite.
These decisions were correct, as they follow the current CNMNC procedures and guidelines on mineral nomenclature (Nickel and Grice, 1998):
Mandarino (2007) published on his own initiative, disregarding the then ongoing discussion within the CNMNC, a list of mineral names which in his opinion needed diacritical marks.
I thank to Frederic Hatert, CNMNC vice-chairman, for handling the proposal, and all members of the CNMNC who contributed to this proposal.
