Apoptosis (or should we say apotosis?)

according to this introductory book (Molecular biology made simple and  
fun by David Clark):

apoptosis in Greek for "dropping off" and if you want to fool other  
people into thinking you are educated, you must not pronounce the  
second "p". 

Apparently, that's the mechanism by which tadpoles lose their tails when becoming frogs.
