New Typewriter Words

Authors

Abstract

In his Language on Vacation, Dmitri Borgmann drew attention to what he called "typewriter words." Dmitri posed various questions about the longest words which could be typed on the different rows of the typewriter keyboard, words which could be typed entirely by the left hand and words which could be typed entirely by the right hand. As 2015 is the 50th anniversary of the publication of Language on Vacation, it's worth revisiting some of Dmitri's findings.
