Abstract

In the very first issue of Word Ways (February, 1968), Dmitri Borgmann looked at the transposability of the names of a few of the chemical elements. For example, CURRY ME can be rearranged to give MERCURY, and A TIN LUMP can be rearranged to give PLATINUM. Unfortunately, terms like CURRY ME and A TIN LUMP are not recorded in any dictionaries we know of.
