Calendar Transadditions


Tom Pulliam


In the May 1982 Kickshaws, Darryl Francis challenged Word Ways Readers to find Websterian transadditions of the Jewish, Muhammadan, Hindu and French Revolutionary calendar names (all listed in Webster's). I have accepted this challenge, with the results given below. Most of the words can be found in both Webster's Second and Third Editions, but those followed by 2 are only in Webster's Second. An asterisk denotes a pure transposition; no added letters were needed.
