Earlier issues of Word Ways have demonstrated the fecundity of the seven-letter group AEINRST when it comes to transposals. My August 1998 article offered 155 transposals of these letters, a November 1999 Colloquy added a further four transposals, and my February 2000 article offered another 23 transposals found on the Internet. There were 181 transposals in all in those three items; RE-SATIN was included as a coinage in the original 155, and confirmed as a genuine word in the 23 Internet transposals.
