Dumb typo

Sorry, folks: I've just noticed a stupid typo in one of my postings.
What I wrote was this:

> No.  By `lookalikes', I mean words or morphemes which, in the opinion of

> circular, though it is certainly highly objective, at least until
> tightened up by the provision of fully explicit criteria for adjudging

This should, of course, have read "it is certainly highly subjective".
My apologies if I've bewildered anybody.
