Such errors have sometimes generated new fanspeak terms and nicknames, such as filk, poctsarcd, Smtih and Frqnk.

From Fancyclopedia 2, ca. 1959
Typographical Error Typographical error. A savage and untamable beast, the bane of publishers. Obliterine heals any wound made by a typo, as Jophan found on his pilgrimage to The Enchanted Duplicator, and this useful fluid should always be kept handy when indulging in crifanac.
