We are the Γραμματο-
We continually machinate from the shadows, though every few years we announce various projects or take on sundry contracts.

an apkin → a napkin
Our initial experiment has been to encourage the reanalysis of “astigmatism” as “a stigmatism”, which
Suggestions provided below focus on linguistic- and language-
— simple n-accretion: a nabessive case, a nadjective, a necho question, a neggcorn, a nimplosive, a ninchoative aspect, a nindefinite determiner, a nopen class word, a noral cavity, a nunrounded vowel, a nutterance, a nŷĝĝḓřấŝíìλ, a nypsilon.
Level 1 Bonus
— advanced n-accretion: a Nenglish creole, a Nindo- European language, a Nay- bar.
— simple n-separation: an asal consonant, an ative speaker, an egation, an eologism, an euter gender, an eutralization, an ominal clause, an ominalizer, an ormative grammar, an oun, an oun phrase, an ull anaphora, an ull element, an ull morpheme.
Level 2 Bonus
— non → on: an on-configurational language, an on-count noun, an on-finite verb, an on-restrictive relative clause.
— an-separation: an alogy, an alytic language, an aphor, an alysis
Level 3 Bonus
— reanalysis → an realysis
— any which way: an imate noun, a ninanimate noun, an otated corpus, a nunannotated corpus, an achronistic word, a nunanachronistic word, an alagous change, a nunanalagous change.
— definitely pushing the boundaries!: the matic role, the oretical linguistics, the ory of communication, the saurus, the ta-marking, the ta-role.
May the oddness be ever in your favor!
* Note that these etymologies may be simplified, apocryphal, or outright lies. This matters not, as they are merely inspiration for deeds of derring-do.
