Permutatinos

One of my most common typos is "permutatinos" for "permutations". A friend points out that this is quite apt.

So you've discovered the fundamental particle of permutation? This is huge. Call a physicist!

Strictly speaking, permutatinos operate on just two things. More general particles composed of permutatinos are called permutatons. Each permutaton has a spin (+1 or -1), determined multiplicatively with permutatinos have spin -1.

I assumed this was about n-polyominoes with cells labeled from 1 to n.

The only "-tion" word I consistently typo is "questino". I don't know why it happens to that word and not others.
