For the dedicated logologist, it has always been an article of faith that every English word and name can be transposed into some other word or name, or into a cohesive group of words functioning as the equivalent of a single word or name, imparting a unified meaning, clearly and grammatically. For a word or name to defy transposition would be an act of treason, so to speak. With such defiance virtually unthinkable, the validity of the belief itself has never been put to an objective test.
