It is a reasonably safe assumption that most readers of Word Ways know something of the technical terms relating to the study of words and language. By analogy, a competent brain surgeon must know the various technical terms relevant to his skills. Without this knowledge he is little more than a dilettante, incapable of usefully describing his skills to an onlooker. Is not the same true for the study of words and language?
