Actually, people are not "nauseus," they are "nauseated".

Only things like rotten eggs can be "nauseus," usually.

I reply:

I didn't mean the adjective. When Anthony said
"Reductio ad nauseum", that would make sense only if there were
a Latin noun "nauseus" or "nauseum". Of course the noun is "nausea",
and we're familiar with the phrase "ad nauseam".
