Default Re: Wiring a 110V two-phase motor?

I was certainly of the impression that a motor labelled as being "two-phase" was simply that, intended to operate from a two-phase supply. And that the various forms of single-phase induction motors, split-phase, capacitor start, capacitor start and run, etc., were labelled as being "single-phase".

The attached chart, although just a single example, does tend to confirm that impression.
