Buoyed by my discovery of WROKYNE, I began searching for other NEW YORK transposals
. It didn't take long to discover the unfamiliar surname YOWNKER.
This is an attempt to fill in some of the gaps and to improve on some of the transposals
. Not all new transposals
are necessarily improvements, but they are at least worth noting.
have the same number of letters: (a) same letters = transposals
(b) one letter different: (i) a vowel replaced by a different vowel (ii) a vowel replaced by a Y (iii) a vowel replaced by a consonant (iv) a consonant replaced by a consonant such as prise and prize-these are not considered here 2.
Remarkably, there are only four allowable transposals
of the letters ACOT and they can be used to make a perfect regular Latin square.
