Word Ways


Although many words and names are transportable, many more are not, learning a bitter taste in the loglogist's mouth. One way of overcoming the problem in relation to groups of words and names is to adopt the transaddition which includes one extra letter as an acceptable standard of achievement, which the further proviso that each transaddition need not adhere to that standard: all that is necessary is for all members of a group of transadditions to adhere to it is their average. This supplementary condition permits some members of the group to add zero letters, becoming genuine transposals, these being balanced by an equal number of two-letter transadditions.
