At the bottom of 745, Hal asks for a definition of Haplology. Haplogy (wait for it) is when two similar sounding syllables occur next to one another but one is omitted. Probably = probly and so on. Try reading this section again and omit the syllables. It gets interesting, I think.

I've re-read the section, but I'm not sure which omitted syllables you're referring to. I'm intrigued. Please elaborate. :)
