Dual status words.

TAUTONYMS

The word CAVEAT is both aNT and an ANT (both 26 26). Thus it is a Dual Status Numerical Tautonym which involves 2 numerically-different digits. Here are others of this genre:

BALAAM (a prophet) = 15.15(NT) 15/15(ANT)

BIONIC = 26 26

DECAUDATED = 34 34

REPACKAGES = 43 43

MOUTON, SINGINGS and PORTON = 49 49

TUMOUR, PARSONET and SPARTANS = 54 54

STOCKILY = 57 57

TELESMETER = 61 61

CONTRIBUTIVE = 79 79

STRIDULATORY = 91 91

FLABLE (a fan) = 19 19

ECAUDATE = 30 30

ASPISH = 36 36

REVUES = 45 45

WRAPPERS = 58 58

SLOPPILY = 62 62

CRUSTALOGIST = 82 82

MYSTIFYINGLY = 92 92

HELPED = 25 25

CONDOM = 32 32

BOREHOLE (w2) = 40 40

VENEERER = 46 46

TORSOS and OCTODONT = 53 53

UNFOUGHT = 56 56

UNFRAGRANT = 60 60

SYSTYR (sister) = 63 63

PRE-SHAKESPEARIAN = 83 83

SUPPRESSIONS = 95 95

PALINDROMES

Dual Status Numerical Palindromes are less restricted. They can be divided into the following categories:

A. those in which the NP and ANP are the same

HEAVEN = both 14 41

JESTER = both 34 43

FOAMIEST = both 35 53

CONTORTION = both 67 76

\ IMPEDING = both 43 43

B. those in which the 2 NP digits swap positions in the ANP

CADDICED = 12.21 (NP) 21/12 (ANP)

RUPTIONS = 75.57 (NP) 57/75 (ANP)

SEWS = 24.42 (NP) 42/24 (ANP)

DEVOTARY (a devotee) = 46.64 (NP) 64/46 (ANP)

C. those in which the NP and ANP are different

(i) either the NP or ANP is configured from a single repeated digit :

a) NP configured from a single repeated digit

SCUA(skua) = 22.22(NP) 40/04(ANP)

ARCHIE = 22.22(NP) 13/31 (ANP)

UNITES, PUGGLY (poggle), TWAYNE (twain) and EPAGOMENIC (intercalary days) = 44.44 (NP) 35/53(ANP)

UNHASPED and ANTIMASK (w2) = 44.44 (NP) 53/35 (ANP)

SONGLESS = 55.55 (NP) 64/46 (ANP)

PARTYING = 55.55 (NP) 73/37 (ANP)

b) ANP configured from a single repeated digit

ACUS = 04.40 (NP) 22/22 (ANP)

HIGHJACKED = 42/24 (NP) 33.33 (ANP)

GAMESTER = 26.62 (NP) 44/44 (ANP)

ACIDOPHILOUS = 48.84 (NP) 66/66 (ANP)

DIKERS = 24.42 (NP) 33/33 (ANP)

UNCOOKED = 53.35 (NP) 44.44 (ANP)

DILUTEST = 46.64 (NP) 55/55 (ANP)

SPEARWORTS = 59.95 (NP) 77.77 (ANP)

(ii) neither the NP nor the ANP is configured from a single repeated digit

BASK = 03.30 (NP) 21/12 (ANP)

TUCK = 41.14 (NP) 23/32 (ANP)

GEOTROPY = 47.74 (NP) 56/65 (ANP)

CYANOTYPES = 58.85 (NP) 49/94 (ANP)

FROZENLY = 65.56 (NP) 38/83 (ANP)

BILIPURPURIN(w2) = 69.96(NP) 78/87(ANP)

SYNOVIALLY = 95.59 (N-P) 68/86 (ANP)

WIRE = 32.23 (NP) 41/14 (ANP)

SUDANIZE = 45.54 (NP) 63/36 (ANP)

EXPIATES = 54.45 (NP) 27/72

ZIONWARD = 64.46 (NP) 82/28 (ANP)

FREQUENTLY = 67.76 (NP) 58/85 (ANP)

SCHISANDRACEAE (= Magnoliaceae -w2)=73.37(NP) 82/28(AN-P)

ALLEGORIZE = 37.73 (NP) 64/46 (ANP)

MISDRIVE = 45.54 (NP) 72/27 (ANP)

MULTI-STATUS WORDS

RACIAL is a Multi-Status Word. It is a NT, NP, an ANT and an ANP, each represented by 22 22. Similarly, DEXIES (ospd) has a 4-way claim to 33 33, whilst REFOOTED and UNDEREAT each have a 4-way claim to 44 44.

nb. Alternate Letter Numeracy also produces results in fields other than tautonymic and palindromic ones. Below are examples of Alternate Numerical Number Sequences:

JOBS = 12/34

WATT = 43/21

GREYNESS = 45/67

OUTSWARM = 76/54

CLONES = 23/45

URSINE = 54/32

COMPONENTS = 56/78

RAVENOUSLY = 87/65

AUTUMN = 34/56

VACATIONER = 65/43

CRYPTOLOGY = 67/89

VERMIFORMOUS = 98/76
