elment* (for element, elementary)

Generally credited to the Russian chemist Dmitri Mendeleev, the Periodic Table of the Elements has been feted since in Tom Lehrer's song, "The Elements," which starts "There's antimony, arsenic, aluminum, selenium And hydrogen and oxygen and nitrogen and rhenium..."

You can listen to the song (and get dizzy at the same time) at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DYW50F42ss8

Searching for elment* should catch any typos of element as well as elementary.
