One will surely confess onepeat and twopeat to be, respectively, singularly and doubly astonishing.

Zeropeat does not occur. I hereby copyright the word and declare it to be a trademark of Desultor Inc. I also patent the idea of a verbal noun referring to the completion of an action zero times. That shit is not “pending” – it is an active patent. If you try to take food from my babies’ mouths, you will be dealt with forcefully.

    Twopeat more common than fourpeat? I’m incredulous Has this result been peer-reviewed?

  2. a peer Says:

    I dispute that the uses of “OnePeat” as a user handle on the SaintsReport cummunity bulletin board should be counted as “usages” of language.

    Certainly, twelvepeat is dodecadently astonishing.

    Dear Ezra,
    It seems not to have done so well with you and our other peer. Dang! I tried to get pre-publication peer review going but that hasn’t been added to the software yet, I guess.

    Dear Peer,
    They’re “hits”, not “usages”. And I never called it “language” either. By the way, have you seen the livelily scholarly Language Log? It’s a great site.

    Dear Jan12,

    Hi Onepeat, glad to see you. Don’t worry, I don’t want to trademark your name. And I hope the Saints have better luck this year.

  12. Saintsfan Says:

    OnePeat the poster on SR is a poor excuse for a person, you SHOULD sue him for use of your name..

  13. desultor Says:

    Shouldn’t y’all Saints fans be sticking together, not fighting?

    Best of luck to the team!

    Hugs and kisses,
