I came across these websites while trying to find the definition for the word stafallah of which I saw written and at first had tried staphallah and did not know that staph was some kind of disease.

Ah! Here it is in the American heritage dictionary.

Staph is short for (now get ready) staphylococcus and staphylococci is the plural form as though I would ever use that word in a sentence.

Itís some sort of bacteria which causes septicemia and other types of infections. I still wonder if the origin of this word comes from an Arabic word or not.
