Re(4): Pet Peeves -Regularly
IP: 101.109.159.209


Richard, you are only the second person I know of to make that point about regularity. I think it's very valid point that is regularly ignored. At least three terms are required to establish regularity.

I'm also not keen on the increasing use of 'occasionally' for regularly spaced letters. 'Occasional' does not imply regularity, so "failing occasionally" could indicate any non-sequential letters. 'Periodically' strikes me as a better choice.
