The "el" you say!

Vioin* (for Violin and Violins)

A sluggish finger causes the omission of the letter "el" in Violin. Violin must be typed in a steady staccato or you'll hit a sour note. Notice that all the letters in Violin except the initial "v" are typed with the right hand (for touch typists, anyway)--and the letters "o" and "l" are typed with the same exhausted finger.

"Vioin*" has a high probability of being in your own catalog. A recent check in OhioLINK retrieved 23 entries: 18 for "Vioin" (Violin) and 5 for "Vioins" (Violins).
