I was curious if duodenum was the every day common english name for it or the offical? like tailbone and coccyx for instance. or collarbone/clavicle.
"Tennessine! Tennissine! Tennissine!" shouts the man from Tennessee. (New name for element 117) :)

This is a philosophical question--is every quiz also a spelling quiz? Quizmaster seems to believe, within some reasonable limit, that knowing the answer to a question and knowing how to spell the words are separate things. After all, if you were administering an oral trivia quiz, you would receive a correct answer whether you knew how to spell it or not.
It's a judgement call about whether or not a misspelling is "close enough". I'd love to have the option (strict spelling or not) on each quiz, but I imagine that would be an impractical amount of work (for one thing, we'd get into a lot of arguments about what is a valid alternate answer, a valid variant spelling, or a misspelling acceptable under the looser standard; for the second, you'd have to effectively have two sets of answer patterns).
If you're going to accept misspellings at all, I'd favor "grafite", especially for those coming from other tongues.
And although the current answer for an atom's nucleus is obvious, up quark and down quark are also correct answers. Very sad when they didn't work :'(
this question pretty much gives away the answer to the next one about what element is graphite made of
(and i dont think graphene occurs naturally)
