I knew that, I was just playing around with the neologism, hence the smiley.Kates wrote:

That, I didn't know. I thought you were trying for the more common "illiterate."ALITERACY is "the quality or state of being able to read but uninterested in doing so" (according to Webster).
Like I said, I knew I was using alliteration. Were it a word, "alliteracy" might mean "the quality of being alliterative." "The author of 'Beowulf' was alliterate."Alliteracy is not a word. Both of us missed that one.
What? No one is groaning yet? I must be slipping.
