Abstract

In "Typewriter Words" in the November Word Ways, Mike Keith define isofinger words as those in which each finger is used at most once (fo eight-letter words, each finger used exactly once). I find the ter isofinger unfortunate, since iso- means "equal" when the opposite I intended. As possible alternatives, I propose hertofinger (somewhat un gainly), heterodigital (hybrid components), or pandigital (in my opinion the biggest).
