Letters, Letters, and More Letters

A Meta-Letter from the Editor-in-Chief

The zeugmatic theme of this month’s issue is letters. In the epistolary department, a long-standing logjam has been broken, and a flood of missives has been released. The logodaedalists among the Letters Interns had been at loggerheads over how to handle the logorrhea so common among our correspondents. The vast majority (of the interns, not your letters) have been sorted into the round file, as per usual, but a larger than usual number (of your letters, not interns) made it through to publication. Enjoy!or, Regret!, as appropriate.

Chiasmus of the Month
February 2018

Numerically speaking, last month’s publication of Praenomen Gentilicium Cognomen, Esq.’s extended Numeri++ Roman numeral “expansion pack” inspired the development of an automatic conversion toolwhich will transcode all but the most impractically large numbers into a string of cleverly efficient diacritical characters.

On the orthographic front, we are also pleased to share the Text Perplexer, which will munge your otherwise bland and boring text by making random homoglyphic replacements. The bearing, if any, this might have on our rublication woes “іѕ а mаttеr оn whісh wе сannοt сommеnt,” according to the Legal Interns, all of whom are surprisingly fluent in Russian.

If you’ve suddenly gotten an urge to write to us with orthographically perplexified extended Numeri++ representations of the many numbers included in your dispatchcontrol yourself! This was the month for that, and you’ve missed it. Accept the crushing disappointment, and move on.
