and if they did hear (not from an electroacoustic composer, who might
tend to weight the situation a bit) they might look it up in a dictionary

Webster:

One entry found for electroacoustics.

Main Entry: elec·tro·acous·tics
Pronunciation: i-"lek-trO-&-'küs-tiks
Function: noun plural but singular in construction
: a science that deals with the transformation of acoustic energy into
electric energy or vice versa
- elec·tro·acous·tic /-tik/ adjective

and the OED which only has

  electro-acoustics, acoustics investigated by electrical methods; hence
electro-acoustic,

and

1879 DU MONCEL Telephone 11 The *electro-musical telephones.
