 2008-01-18, 09:24 #1 devarajkandadai     May 2004 22×79 Posts Mally's habits Mally had a habit of using newspaper-cuttings as bookmarks.In one of his books I found the following: "200 hundred year old maths query solved" This refers to solution of "Warring problem"-resolution of any positive integer into 19 fourth powers-a problem solved by Prof. R.Balasubramaniam and French collaborators.The cutting is dated 17th Feb 1986. Incidentally exactly four months have pased since Mally's passing. A.K.Devaraj

Verbal diaorreah (can't spell it) is how I would describe it.

"Dire rear".

And you're probably trying to describe logorrhea.

Diarrhoea. Just got the h and o in the wrong place. Not difficult IMO.
This was indeed what I was trying (succeeded?) to describe.

Not to be confused with their siblings "Chris" or "Gonna"
