Article Title

Half-Half Transposals

Authors

Susan Thorpe

Abstract

Most readers will be familiar with split-word transposals such as HORSEHOER in which the letters of the first half of the words are repeated in the second half in a different order. The current exercise is similar, but different in that it concerns pairs of words rather than a single word. I set out to find pairs of words (such as ISOL.ATED and SOLIDATE) in which the letters of the first half of the first word, rearranged, form the letters of the first half of the second word; and the letters of the second half of the first word, rearranged, form the letters of the second half of the second word.
