Editing Issues

One of more annoying side effects of editing a long piece of writing on a specific topic is that words stop seeming like words. You have to ask someone if the word is really a word. You have to consult the dictionary. You don't always believe it when you are told that yes, that is a word. Eventually you just need to take a break and pretend that the word doesn't exist.

This seems to happen to me fairly often with a few words. Here's a few of those words, in no order. Although it happens most often with the first word in the list.

  • integer
  • eighths
  • algebraically 
  • logarithm
It might be obvious that I edit math-related things.
