Default To MJR: Monosyllables.........

Thank you, Martin, for your kind monosyllabic remarks!

Try as I might, I couldn't manage to reply in monosyllables! And, of course, you're not sesquipedalian or any of those other things - that was just a joke - but I think we both appreciate the nuances of words and semantics, don't we?

Kind Regards,

John.

Default Polysyllabalism.

John

No, even I ran out of steam with only a few such words. Full blooded polysyllables are much more entertaining..

( My dad, an inveterate wordsmith, once thought to write a whole children's story in monsyllables, some 000's of words; he thought it very clever, but it didn't really work. Very awkward to read, perversely.)

Full marks to your selection in Lisa's critique, they had me ingrossed in a dictionary for quite a while ! I could not begin to compete with your erudition !
