Banananames

Abstract

Words like LOGOLOGICAL, which alternate vowels and sonsonanats could use a succinct name. David Morice's The Dictionary of Word Play cites them only with reference to numbers, as "alternating vowel-consonant number name", a wordful description rather than a handy name. May we suggest "banananames", in the spirit of Agamemnon, Albuquerque and Miami words which are named after prime examples.
