Speaking of libfixes:  This morning in my Elizabethan Poetry class, I overheard myself telling the students that they should have developed a degree of SONNETDAR--the ability to glance at an unfamiliar poem on the printed page and estimate whether it's likely to be a sonnet.

I wonder if anybody else uses that term?  (Google is unhelpful.)
