Shown… - oldbloke's mutterings
My 20 volume OED says you can spell it both ways.
Can, yes, but it lists the i version as the main and the y as a variant, yes?
It just says "siphon, also syphon" and "syphon VAR siphon"
Pick the bones out of that!
Incidentally I couldn't reply directly because you don't list me as a friend.
According to my Manage Friends page I do. Odd.

The entry for syphon only says "var siphon" which means that siphon is the dominant version.
