Some words are insincere; others lack integrity or argue against their meaning. Some have phony or misleading meaning: Why, for instance, do we spell "phonetic" with a "p" and not an "f"? Why when you play with "honestly" are you left with "on the sly." Why is "you're a sight" an insult and "you're a vision" a compliment? Teresa Monachino wants to reside in a word world that makes sense, a realm where "palindrome" is a palindrome. That failing, she decided to hoodwink us into seeing.
