German has the hypothetical word "Zoooologe" (someone who studies eggs in zoos), which came up in the context of the spelling reform which changed words such as "Schiffahrt" into "Schifffahrt". But it notes that such words can also be hyphenated for clarity if desired: Zoo-Oologe. Cheers, Philip -- GMX - Die Kommunikationsplattform im Internet.
