To the Editor:—
Two minor aberrations from your pages are conspicuous because of The Journal's near perfection. One is probably a typographical error, but the other is a neologism with which The Journal would not, I hope, willingly and knowingly be associated: The use of the word "fibrillate" as a transitive verb would be a "neoverbism," because "fibrillate" is, of course, a perfectly respectable word if used respectably.
