    Willard, the Red,

    Mary Dee's explanation of the snipe game was most fascinating.

    And for some reason, I scrolled on to find a snypo! (a typo of the
    snipe-variety) in a message that I had sent.

    Willared -- linguistic interference of "mallard" euphony?

    Leads me to ask : are there researchers working on the epistolary genre
    who have done stylistic analysis of the possible links between
    sub-vocalisation and the graphic presentation of "errors"? in other words
    is there a corpus of letters about marked up in such a fashion that one
    would be able to compute the frequency of occurence for auditory ghosts in
    written communications.

    Supplemental question: how many touch typists compose by dictation?
