From Sir Kenneth Dover

Sir: I assure Professor Broadbent (Letters; "Fluid words and helpful fluids", 5 September) that with my old Olivetti, I can "get exactly the right word in exactly the right place".

All I have to do is to take a pen, draw a line through the wrong words and write the right word above it. If it's in the wrong place, I can draw a line round it and an arrow leading to the right place.

Satisfyingly creative, rather like sculpture.

Yours etc,

Kenneth Dover

St Andrews,
